In this study, by means of parametric distortion of an ideal hexahedral element, we investigate the accuracy and sensitivity of some hexahedral element quality metrics existing in the literature. We also investigate and compare the relative computational costs of each metrics. We try to identify the weaknesses and strengths of all metrics under interrogation, and come up with some proposals for practical use.
