Abstract—In this paper we develop element DKMQ five Degrees of Freedom (DOF) per nodal with curvilinear approach. The advantage of this element that it is not required fictitious rigidity and can be used to analyze thick and thin structural problem without shear locking. As numerical result, DKMQ five DOF are able to give good performance. 
 
Index Terms—DKMQ, five DOF, convergence test
