A new finite element formulation aimed at the solution of problems involving strain localization is presented. The proposed formulation incorporates displacement interpolated embedded localization lines. Results are shown to converge to an ‘exact solution’ when the mesh is refined and also to be quite insensitive to mesh distortions.
