Stability of Some Finite Element Methods for Finite Elasticity Problems
We consider the finite elasticity problem for incompressible materials, proposing a simple bidimensional problem for which we provide indications on the solution stability. Furthermore, we study the stability of the discrete solution, obtained by means of some well-known finite elements, and we present several numerical experiments in order to evaluate and compare the performance of the different discrete schemes under investigation on the considered model problem.
