This paper presents an overview on developments of special elements in hybrid finite element method (FEM). Recent developments on special elements of the hybrid FEM are described. Formulations for all cases are derived by means of modified variational functional and fundamental solutions or Trefftz functions. Generation of elemental stiffness equations from the modified variational principle is also discussed. Finally, a brief summary of the approach and potential research topics is provided.
