Finite Element Analysis (FEA) — Linear and Elliptic Partial Differential Equations for a Scalar Variable in Two Dimensions

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

This course discusses the process of building two-dimensional problems for the linear and elliptic PDEs using a scalar variable. The strong and the weak form are discussed using constitutive relations and boundary conditions. Then, we talk about the gradient of the trial solution and the weighting function. Lastly, we discuss the matrix-vector weak form. This course was developed by Prof. Krishna Garikipati and Dr. Gregory Teichert, at the University of Michigan in partnership with Ansys.
