    We analyze nonconforming finite element approximations of streamline-diffusion type for solving convection-diffusion problems. Both the theoretical and numerical investigations show that additional jump terms have to be added in the nonconforming case in order to get the same order of convergence in L as in the conforming case for convection dominated problems. A rigorous error analysis supported by numerical experiments is given.
