[en] Several finite element (FE) simulations were investigated using a recently developed mixed type element: the BWD3D. The main formulation of the element is largely described, with particular focus on the shear locking treatment. The formulation of the former BLZ3D element is also presented for comparison. The examples investigated in the present study were beam bending, large strain torsion, incremental forming and deep drawing .The numerical results obtained with both elements were compared to experiments.
