For undergraduate electrical engineering students, Cardoso explains the

finite element method for solving dedicated electromagnetic problems based on the basic laws of electromagnetics, without using sophisticated mathematical resources.

The following three sections of the book present a more detailed development of the

finite element method, then progress through the boundary element method, and end with meshless methods.

Both models' approximation uses rod-type

finite element BEAM188 of ANSYS program elements library.

Keywords:

Finite Element Method, Direct Stiffness Method, Structural Analysis, Two Dimensional Truss Analysis.

All articles related to the application of 3D

finite element in orthodontics were collected.

The

finite element model of the examined structure is composed of

finite elements of several types: plane (triangular or quadrangular) and connective quadrangular prismatic

finite elements.

The programs are based on the analytical calculation method and

finite element method (FEM), Figure 1.

The

finite element method (FEM) has been used for five decades for numerical stress analysis (Faur, 2002).

of Minnesota) introduces a common framework for the Control Volume

Finite Element Method (CVFEM) solution, which combines the physics of Control Volume Methods with the geometric flexibility of

Finite Element Methods, so that it can be applied to the solution of equations related to the behavior of both fluids and solids.

If the recovered gradient approximates the exact gradient better than the gradient computed directly by using the

finite element solution, the comparison gives an a posteriori error estimator.

Driven by the need to further understand this complicated field of mechanics, a

finite element analysis (FEA) method was applied to analyze indentation processes.

The second FEMCI Workshop on Innovative

Finite Element Modeling Solutions to Challenging Problems will be held May 16 and 17 at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, MD.
