Table 1 shows the mechanical properties of beech used in the FEM.
Also, numerical integration can be performed with the FEM (using NIntegrate) and interpolation of functions (using InterpolatingFunction) can be done with the FEM.
In this work, the problem of unsteady MHD flow through porous medium in the presence of magnetic field between two parallel flat plates has been investigated and solved using the FEM.
The crack propagation was, to large extends, correctly predicted by the FEM. However, a finer meshing especially in the region with high stress concentrations will result in a more precise cracking pattern within the beam, a diagonal crack pattern could thus resulted.
We can find the resolution of the reconstructed images by determining the signal to noise ratio (SNR) and CPU time for RTE and FEM. The SNR ratio is given as,
Apart from -ster and -es, there is at least a third affix that spells out FEM. Consider the following examples:
FCEM results were also compared with analytical results and with numerical results obtained with FEM.
Comparison of the force-displacement results for radial direction: (a) Experiments; (b) FEM.
Mini-implant deflection and stress distribution was evaluated by Meher AH et al using FEM. (17) Lee et al tried to establish a correlation between the influence of placement angle and the application of orthopedic force.
The results of BSWI-SFEM are shown in Table 2 compared with conventional FEM. It is evident that 1 BSWI-SFEM element can achieve a similar accuracy as 320 conventional Timoshenko elements.
The difficulty and the low efficiency of FEM updating of complex structures mainly lie in the large number of degrees of freedom (DOF) and the huge size of FEM. Therefore, it is effective to improve the efficiency of FEM updating by the "indirect usage" of the analytical FEM.
A new approach is presented that relies upon 3D electromagnetic simulation results to characterize and calculate the T/R coefficient using FEM. The COMSOL software [3] is based on finite element method (FEM) [3, 4] and this method has been used to simulate rectangular waveguide with three dimensions [5, 6].
