Description. - FEM cuts a structure into several elements (pieces of the structure). - Then reconnects elements at “nodes” as if nodes were pins or drops of glue that hold elements together. - This process results in a set of simultaneous algebraic equations. FEM: Method for numerical solution of field ...

Introduction. A finite element method (abbreviated as FEM) is a numerical technique to obtain an approximate solution to a class of problems governed by elliptic partial differential equations. Such problems are called as boundary value problems as they consist of a partial differential equation and the boundary conditions.
