Hybrid stress method is used in the development of beam, plate, cylindrical shell and doubly-curved shell finite elements. The behaviour and convergence of the hybrid elements are dependent on the coefficients appearing in the assumed stress field. This effect is investigated for the elements considered, and optimum stress assumptions are obtained.
