Uniform interior error estimates for the Reissner-Mindlin plate model

Interior error estimates are derived for the solution of the Reissner-Mindlin plate model discretized by mixed-interpolated elements. Precisely, it is shown that the error in an interior domain can be estimated by the sum of two terms: the first has the best order of accuracy that is possible locally for the finite element spaces used, the second is a weak norm of the error on a slightly larger domain (this term measures the effects from outside of this domain). The analysis is based on some
