A New Look at Element Shape Parameters

A new definition of shape parameters for a quadrilateral is presented. It is shown that the shape parameters can be expressed in terms of simple polynomial coefficients with a clear physical meaning. It is also shown how the shape parameters can be evaluated from the Jacobian matrix. Element warpage and convexity are also covered.
