Course Description:
The course aims at introducing the Introduction: The basic concept of finite-element method. Variational formulation and approximation: Concepts and formulas, notation, boundary-and initial-value problems, gradient and divergence theorems, functional, Variational formulation problems, the Ritz method, the method of weighted residuals. Finite-element analysis of one-dimensional problems: One-dimensional second-order equations, one-dimensional fourth-order equations, and approximation errors in the finite-element method, time-dependent problems, and computer implementation. Finite-element analysis in two-dimensional problems: Second-order equations involving a scalar-valued function, second-order-multivariable functions, time-dependent problems, computer implementation.
