FEM/BEM NOTES (Finite Element Method – Boundary Element Method by Hunter P.)

All our software programs incorporate a Finite Element Method (FEM) solver along with a Boundary Element Method (BEM) solver. FEM is a common powerful numerical method for solution of partial differential equations in applications which need to capture local effects. For a given design, the FEM requires the entire geometry, including the surrounding region, to be modeled with finite elements. A system of linear equations is generated to calculate the potential (scalar or vector) at the nodes of each element.
