Abstract : A Composite Hexahedral Mixed Finite Element for hexahedral meshes is presented. This composite element is based on the decomposition of the hexahedron into five tetrahedrons. A diffusion equation with an anisotropic diffusion coefficient and a known exact solution is solved on Kershaw meshes. Error charts for the $L^2$-error in both the scalar and vector variables are shown.
