TY - CHAP A1 - Antonio Bilotta ED1 - Mahboub Baccouch Y1 - 2021-11-17 PY - 2021 T1 - A MATLAB-Based Symbolic Approach for the Quick Developing of Nonlinear Solid Mechanics Finite Elements N2 - This book provides several applications of the finite element method (FEM) for solving real-world problems. FEM is a widely used technique for numerical simulations in many areas of physics and engineering. It has gained increased popularity over recent years for the solution of complex engineering and science problems. FEM is now a powerful and popular numerical method for solving differential equations, with flexibility in dealing with complex geometric domains and various boundary conditions. The method has a wide range of applications in various branches of engineering such as mechanical engineering, thermal and fluid flows, electromagnetics, business management, and many others. This book describes the development of FEM and discusses and illustrates its specific applications.
