Contemporary engineering sciences are strictly related to the broad application of computer technologies and methods. The finite difference method (FDM), the boundary element method (BEM) and the finite element method (FEM) are the most popular computational methods. The FEM is certainly the most widely used, which is proven by the numerous computing systems based on this method that are applied in engineering practice.
