ENME 647 - Finite Element Method - Winter 2023

One- and multi-dimensional problems in linear and steady heat conduction and elasticity. Emphasis on: strong and weak formulation of the boundary value problems (BVP) and their approximation by Galerkin's method; fundamentals of finite element interpolation and construction of interpolation functions for a variety of multi-dimensional element shapes; existence and uniqueness of the solution; error estimates; finite element arrays and data structures employed in computer programs; numerical integration techniques; and mesh construction.
