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.
