The Finite Element Method
The Finite Element Method (FEM) is a numerical technique used to solve partial differential equations by transforming them into a matrix equation. The primary feature of FEM is its ability to describe the geometry or the media of the problem being analyzed with great flexibility. This is because the discretization of the domain of the problem is performed using highly flexible nonuniform patches or elements that can easily describe complex structures.
