Finite Element in Time

Part of the Foundations of Engineering Mechanics book series (FOUNDATIONS)


In this chapter, finite element in time is explained with the help of examples and coupled differential equations are solved with the periodic conditions. Finite difference method (Runge–Kutta fourth order) is explained as well. Note that the helicopter blade equations are periodic differential equations.
