MacElastic : Instructional Finite Element Analysis for Solving Elasticity Problems With the Macintosh®
Cooke, J. Robert; Davis, D. C.; Sobel, E. Ted
Finite Element Analysis is a numerical method for solving problems by breaking the physical space into discrete “elements” for which the approximate solution is known. The composite of these finite elements is used to form the global solution. Specifically, MacElastic (ME) solves problems governed by the biharmonic equation in 2 dimensions (planar) and 3 dimensions (problems having symmetry about an axis).
