|Abstract:||The construction of finite element approximations in H(div, Omega) usually requires the Piola transformation to map vector polynomials from a master element to vector fields in the elements of a partition of the region Omega. It is known that degradation may occur in convergence order if non affine geometric mappings are used. On this point, we revisit a general procedure for the improvement of two-dimensional flux approximations discussed in a recent paper of this journal (Comput. Math. Appl. 74 (2017) 3283-3295). The starting point is an approximation scheme, which is known to provide L-2-errors with accuracy of order k + 1 for sufficiently smooth flux functions, and of order r + 1 for flux divergence. An example is RTk spaces on quadrilateral meshes, where r = k or k - 1 if linear or bilinear geometric isomorphisms are applied. Furthermore, the original space is required to be expressed by a factorization in terms of edge and internal shape flux functions. The goal is to define a hierarchy of enriched flux approximations to reach arbitrary higher orders of divergence accuracy r + n + 1 as desired, for any n >= 1. The enriched versions are defined by adding higher degree internal shape functions of the original family of spaces at level k + n, while keeping the original border fluxes at level k. The case n = 1 has been discussed in the mentioned publication for two particular examples. General stronger enrichment n > 1 shall be analyzed and applied to Darcy's flow simulations, the global condensed systems to be solved having same dimension and structure of the original scheme|
