Abstract A high-continuity finite element formulation for plane stress/strain problems has been described in the literature by Aristodemo. It involves regions of interpolation which overlap. In this paper, the concept is tested on a number of problems not previously considered, including transient dynamics problems. An extension of the concept to plate elements is discussed, it being found that the accuracy resulting for a given number of degrees of freedom is comparable to that of the better existing plate elements, but there is no advantage in accuracy.
