In Part I we have presented a hybrid finite element method based on an assumed stress field which has the features: (i) the unknowns in the final system of finite element equations are (a) the nodal velocities, and (b) the 'constant term' in the arbitrary pressure field over each element; (ii) 'exact' integrations were performed for each element. In the following we present studies of stability and convergence of the above hybrid finite element method.
