Abstract:

The paper addresses the problem of plate modeling within the framework of the h-p version of the finite element method. A natural hierarchy of models is constructed. The lowest member of the hierarchy is the well known Reissner-Mindlin model. It is shown that higher degree elements do not show any locking effects for the models under consideration.
