Divergence–free Scott–Vogelius elements on curved domains

08/14/2020 ∙ by Michael Neilan, et al. ∙ 0

We construct and analyze an isoparametric finite element pair for the Stokes problem in two dimensions. The pair is defined by mapping the Scott-Vogelius finite element space via a Piola transform. The velocity space has the same degrees of freedom as the quadratic Lagrange finite element space, and therefore the proposed spaces reduce to the Scott-Vogelius pair in the interior of the domain. We prove that the resulting method converges with optimal order, is divergence–free, and is pressure robust. Numerical examples are provided which support the theoretical results.
