Finite Element Methods

Introduction: Finite element methods, history and range of applications.

Finite Elements: definition and properties, assembly rules and general assembly procedure, features of assembled matrix, boundary conditions.

Continuum problems: classification of differential equations, variational formulation approach, Ritz method, generalized definition of an element, element equations from variations. Galerkin?s weighted residual approach, energy balance methods.

Element shapes and interpolation functions: Basic element shapes, generalized co-ordinates, polynomials, natural co-ordinates in one-, two- and three-dimensions, Lagrange and Hermite polynomials, two-D and three-D elements for Co and C1 problems, Co-ordinate transformation, iso-parametric elements and numerical integration.
