In this paper we analyze the convergence of mixed finite element approximations to the solution of the Reissner-Mindlin plate problem. We show that several known elements fall into our analysis, thus providing a unified approach. We also introduce a low-order triangular element which is optimal-order convergent uniformly in the plate thickness.
