Abstract: This paper describes a numerical solution for plane elasticity problem. It includes algorithms for discretization by mixed finite element methods. The discrete scheme allows the utilization of Brezzi - Douglas - Marini element (BDM1) for the stress tensor and piecewise constant elements for the displacement. The numerical results are compared with some previously published works or with others coming from commercial code like ABAQUS.
