The performance of an error estimate is typically appraised in a given norm by computing an e ectivity index as
= kE (x y)k :
ke(x y )k
Ideally, the e ectivity index should not di er greatly from unity for a wide range of mesh
spacings and polynomial degrees. Bank and Weiser 11] and Oden et al. 17] studied
the error estimation procedure (7.4.8) with the simplifying assumption (7.4.14) and were
able to establish upper bounds of the form
C in the strain energy norm
p kekA = A(e e): They could not, however, show that the estimation procedure was asymptotically correct
in the sense that ! 1 under mesh re nement or order enrichment.
Example 7.4.1. Strouboulis and Haque 19] study the properties of several di erent
error estimation procedures. We report results for the residual error estimation procedure
(7.4.8, 7.4.14) on the \Gaussian Hill" problem. This problem involves a Dirichlet problem
for Poisson's equation on an equilateral triangle having the exact solution u(x y) = 100e;1:5 (x;4:5)2 +(y;2:6)2 ]:
Errors are shown in Figure 7.4....
