We consider the solution of second order elliptic PDEs in Rd with inhomogeneous Dirichlet data by means of an h–adaptive FEM with fixed polynomial order p ∈ N. As model example serves the Poisson equation with mixed Dirichlet–Neumann boundary conditions, where the inhomogeneous Dirichlet data are discretized by use of an H1 / 2–stable projection, for instance, the L2–projection for p = 1 or the Scott–Zhang projection for general p ≥ 1. For error estimation, we use a residual error estimator which includes the Dirichlet data oscillations. We prove that each H1 / 2–stable projection yields convergence of the adaptive algorithm even with quasi–optimal convergence rate. Numerical experiments with the Scott–Zhang projection conclude the work.
