INTRODUCTION TO THE FINITE-ELEMENT METHOD
INTRODUCTION TO THE FINITE-ELEMENT METHODby Farid Amirouche
INTRODUCTION The finite-element method (FEM) is essentially a technique used to obtain a solution to complex problems by discretizing a given physical or mathematical problem into smaller fundamental parts called elements. Then an analysis of the element is conducted using the required principles or law of mechanics. Finally, the solution to the problem as a whole is obtained through an assembly procedure of the individual solutions of the elements. These finite-element techniques have been used in many fields of engineering and science as num…
