Abstract: By using optimized generalized conforming conditions to formulate the plane 4-node element Q4, it is proved that the generalized conforming theory can be expanded to the most fundamental isoparametric elements. Based on the second-order additional displacement field of Q6 and QM6, a new form of additional displacement field was overlaid on Q4 to develop a new element GQM6, which is still second-order and formulated with generalized conforming theory. The numerical results show that the generalized conforming conditions can present more relaxed constraints at element sides than numerical integrals used in QM6, thus the new element GQM6 can exhibit better properties especially on the resistances of mesh distortion. The research shows that it i's still valuable to combine the generalized conforming theory with those traditional finite elements deeply.

Key words: finite element method, generalized conforming, isoparametric element, internal parameters, mesh distortion
