Finite Element Analysis (FEA) — The Matrix-vector Form

Current Status
Not Enrolled
Get Started

In this course, we derive the matrix-vector weak form, which is used in the finite element method. We begin by deriving the matrix-vector form for a single general element, then proceed to derive it for the entire problem domain by assembling the matrix-vector forms for all the elements in the domain.
This course was developed by Prof. Krishna Garikipati and Dr. Gregory Teichert, at the University of Michigan in partnership with Ansys.
