This paper presents a hybrid finite element method based on assumed deviatoric fluid stresses in the element volume and continuous velocity fields at the element boundaries. The deviatoric stress and hydrostatic pressure field have to satisfy a priori, the momentum equations. The generality and the advantage of the present method are discussed, and its versatility is demonstrated through a few numerical experiments. Convergence and stability considerations are also included.
