Finite element approximation of viscoelastic progressively incompressible flows. (English) Zbl 0681.76010
Summary: To avoid any numerical locking in the finite element approximation of viscoelastic flow problems, we propose a three-field approximation of this problem. This approximation, which involves velocities, stresses, and pressures is proved to converge for all times. In the proof, we also obtain convergence results for the three-fields finite element approximation of incompressible elasticity problems.
