Consider an isoparametric element in XY coordinates as shown. Each node has 2 dof (u and v),
so every point p(x,y) has two displacements. The Interpolation Functions are given below.
Problems that can be formulated:
Pr. 1, Make a =3, b=5, determine All the interpolation functions at each node.

Problem 5. Calculate strains at p(1,1), p(-1,2), p(-2,2) and any other point
Answer: THE SAME, Because this is a case of pure shear, all
the strains anywhere in the element are the SAME..

Notice how the shear strain
does not depend on position
of point p, only on a=3 and v=0.1
