PC-Poisson™: Instructional Finite Element Analysis for Solving Poisson's Equation With the IBM-PC®
Cooke, J. R.; Davis, D. C.; Sobel, E. T.; Gates, R.S.; Perl, R.N.
PC-Poisson is an instructional finite element analysis program (for IBM-PCs of the pre-Windows era) for the novice for problems governed by the Poisson equation (for two-dimensional and axisymmetric geometry). The computation code is based upon the Larry Segerlind’s book, Applied Finite Element Analysis, but adds a graphical user interface for receiving input and for displaying output graphically. Poisson’s equation governs steady heat conduction, ideal fluid flow, steady state diffusion, etc. Note: A companion program, MacPoisson, was created for the Macintosh computer.
