From one dimension ... to three

Abstract

Among the numerical methods available today, the FEM has become the most popular for the computation of fields. This is principally due to its flexibility, the ease of programming, and perhaps also the direct link which it provides to the physics of the phenomena studied. We will now describe the principles of its application. We will illustrate these principles with many simple examples before the development, in the next chapter, of the general theory of second order isoparametric finite elements, which is one of the most prevalent implementations of the method.
