A Nonconforming Finite Element Approximation for the von Karman equations
Revised: 29 May 2015
In this paper, a nonconforming finite element method has been proposed and analyzed for the von Kármán equations that describe bending of thin elastic plates. Optimal order error estimates in broken energy and H1 norms are derived under minimal regularity assumptions. Numerical results that justify the theoretical results are presented.
