Title: Hierarchical high‐order conforming C1 bases for quadrangular and triangular finite elements
Author: Ferreira, Luan J. F.

Abstract: We present three new sets of C1 hierarchical high‐order tensor‐product bases for conforming finite elements. The first basis is a high‐order extension of the Bogner–Fox–Schmit basis. The edge and face functions are constructed using a combination of cubic Hermite and Jacobi polynomials with C1 global continuity on the common edges of elements. The second basis uses the tensor product of fifth‐order Hermite polynomials and high‐order functions and achieves global C1 continuity for meshes of quadrilaterals and C2 continuity on the element vertices. The third basis for triangles is also constructed using the tensor product of one‐dimensional functions defined in barycentric coordinates. It also has global C1 continuity on edges and C2 continuity on vertices. A patch test is applied to the three considered elements. Projection and plate problems with smooth fabricated solutions are solved, and the performance of the h‐ and p‐refinements are evaluated by comparing the approximation errors in the L2‐ and energy norms. A plate with singularity is then studied, and h‐ and p‐refinements are analysed. Finally, a transient problem with implicit time integration is considered. The results show exponential convergence rates with increasing polynomial order for the triangular and quadrilateral meshes of non‐distorted and distorted elements
