Some numerical aspects of mixed finite elements for bending plates. (English) Zbl 0707.73074
Summary: Finite element schemes have been extensively studied during the ten last years. One of the reasons is the requirement of accuracy on stresses for composite materials. In this paper a numerical comparison between the solution of a mixed formulation and the famous QUAD 4 is carried out. We focus our attention on the stresses.
