Finite Element Analysis

Posted on Updated on

I have been teaching finite element analysis for more than 10 years. I found students have benefited from the theory and the implementation using software. There are many commersial and free finite element softwares. My research work also very much related to this methods. My postgraduate students are using finite element as a compulsory method. There are various problems that are sucessfully solved using this robust method. ┬áThe basic finite element notes can be found in …/fem. ┬áMore advanced computational methods are in …/ecm.

Have fun with fea.
