## 9.7. A Commentary on the Element Performance

The material stiffness of the present element works fairly well once MacNeals RBF device is done.
On the other hand, simple buckling test problems, as in Exercise 9.3, show that the geometric
stiffness is not so good as that of the C 1 Hermitian beam element.10 Unfortunately a simple

In the sense that one must use more elements to get equivalent accuracy.
