Applications of the finite element method in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer
Abstract
Recent applications of the finite element method to problems in solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, and heat transfer are discussed. A number of the applications are generically nonlinear, indicating that the modern trend is toward more realistic kinematic and constitutive models. Some of the examples involve either weak or strong coupling between two or more of the abovementioned disciplines, also indicating that the finite element method has reached mature levels of application in mechanics.
