Non Conventional Finite Element Formulations.
By this I mean finite elements for which nodes don't need to exist,
curious approximation functions can be used and the field conditions
are imposed a posteriori in a way that is similar to that used in
"conventional" hybrid elements.
So far we have "played" (at least) with: polynomial,
exponential, rational and digital approximation functions in static
elatic, elasto-plastic and dynamic problems. Some work has also been
carried out relating to dual error indicators and adaptive
analysis. A good reference to these formulations can be found in
Procedures for graphic processing of results in Computational Mechanics.
In the course of my work I developed a set of routines for
visualization of results "Janela".

Things I would like to do:
Improve Janela (see above). The idea is to use Tcl/Tk as the
frontend , within which a canvas item of type Janela is defined. It
works, but needs lots of work. I would like to hear other
