I know that shape function is a function that will give the displacements inside an element if its displacement at all the node locations of the element are known.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is linear ,polynomial in shape functions. If i say as linear somebody else may say polynomial etc.

I am not able to visualize this shape functions at all and i am stuck with this in fea. Can anybody throw some light.
