Representative volume element
with random fibers, plaster matrix and a centered nanofiller layer.
Now we describe the finite volume element
discretization of the optimal control problem (6).

In order to configure the graphical block diagram for volume elements
, one has to be aware, that the temperatures of the inlet and outlet mass flows are determined by the flow direction depending on the pressure gradient [p.sub.2]/[p.sub.1] (cp.
Let the nonconforming finite volume element
bilinear form [a.sub.h]: [V.sub.h] x [V.sup.*.sub.h] [right arrow] R be defined as:
Since the constitutive relation of the matrix and aggregates in (11) is linear, it is decomposed into two basic problems, one is that the representative volume element
of concrete is subjected by [E.sup.(1)] = 0 and [H.sup.eq(1)] = [H.sup.eq], respectively, the other is that the representative volume element
of concrete is subjected by [E.sup.(2)] = E and [H.sup.eq(2)] = 0, respectively
In order to investigate the flexural and combined loading response of a representative volume element
of the porous titanium implant for all the different combinations of porosity and pore diameters, twenty rectangular parallelepiped finite element models, with pore diameters as listed in Table 1, are modeled.
Vxi = volume of the i'th volume element
([increment of x]1 x [increment of x]2 x [increment of x]3 x ...
Further, to preserve the conservative characteristics of the interface model (1),  developed an immersed finite volume element
(IFVE) method by combining the finite volume element
method [11-16] and the immersed finite element method.
