An Introduction to Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis, 2nd Edn: with applications to heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and solid mechanics

Abstract

The development of realistic mathematical models that govern the response of systems or processes is strongly connected to the ability to translate them into meaningful discrete models that allow for a systematic evaluation of various parameters of the systems and processes. Mathematical model development and numerical simulations help designers, who are hoping to maximize reliability of products and minimize the cost of production, distribution, and repairs. Mathematical models are developed using laws of physics and assumptions concerning system’s behaviour. The most important step in arrivi ... More

Keywords: mathematical models, numerical simulation tool, finite element model, theoretical formation, model development
