Finite Element Modeling

  • Angelos P. MarkopoulosEmail author
Part of the SpringerBriefs in Applied Sciences and Technology book series (BRIEFSAPPLSCIENCES)


In this chapter, general concepts of FEM are presented. Some advantages and disadvantage of the method are discussed, the various methods available are analyzed, a bibliographical review is presented and FEM programs are discussed. Following the questions and answers of Chap. 2, another similar discussion is made here, with the difference that only finite element modeling is concerned.
