Finite Element Techniques for Acoustics

  • M. Petyt
Part of the International Centre for Mechanical Sciences book series (CISM, volume 277)

Abstract

Finite element techniques were first developed for analysing complex, engineering structures. Once the method had been given a firm mathematical foundation, it was only natural that it should be used for analysing other physical problems which could be represented by partial differential equations. The field of acoustics has been no exception.
