Finite Element Method for Interior Problems
The finite element method has been used for several decades to obtain numerical solutions to different types of problems that arise in science and engineering. These problems include stress and strain in solid bodies, fluid flow, and heat flow. As a result, a number of books have been written about the application of the finite element method to these problems. In addition, several books have been written about the finite element method itself (Refs. 1, 2, 3, 4). And at least one book has as its subject the application of the finite element method to the computation of electric and magnetic fields (Ref. 5).
