The FS-FEM uses 4-node tetrahedral elements that can be generated automatically for complicated domains. In the FS-FEM, the system stiffness matrix is computed using strains smoothed over the smoothing domains associated with the faces of the tetrahedral elements. The results demonstrated that the FS-FEM is significantly more accurate than the FEM using tetrahedral elements for both linear and geometrically non-linear solid mechanics problems. In addition, a novel domain-based selective scheme is proposed leading to a combined FS/NS-FEM model that is immune from volumetric locking and hence works well for nearly incompressible materials. The implementation of the FS-FEM is straightforward and no penalty parameters or additional degrees of freedom are used. The computational efficiency of the FS-FEM is found better than that of the FEM.
