Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations: An Introduction Vitoriano Ruas, Sorbonne Universités, UPMC - Université Paris 6, France A comprehensive overview of techniques for the computational solution of PDE's Numerical Methods for Partial Differential Equations: An Introduction covers the three most popular methods for solving partial differential equations: the finite difference method, the finite element method and the finite volume method. The book combines clear descriptions of the three methods, their reliability, and practical implementation aspects. Justifications for why numerical methods for the main classes of PDE's work or not, or how well they work, are supplied and exemplified. Aimed primarily at students of Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics and Chemistry among others this book offers a substantial insight into the principles numerical methods in this class of problems are based upon. The book can also be used as a reference for research work on numerical methods for PDE’s. Key features: A balanced emphasis is given to both practical considerations and a rigorous mathematical treatment The reliability analyses for the three methods are carried out in a unified framework and in a structured and visible manner, for the basic types of PDE's Special attention is given to low order methods, as practitioner's overwhelming default options for everyday use New techniques are employed to derive known results, thereby simplifying their proof Supplementary material is available from a companion website.

Partial Differential Equations Modeling Analysis and Numerical Approximation

Author: Hervé Le Dret
Publisher: Birkhäuser
ISBN: 9783319270678
Release Date: 2016-02-11
Genre: Mathematics

This book is devoted to the study of partial differential equation problems both from the theoretical and numerical points of view. After presenting modeling aspects, it develops the theoretical analysis of partial differential equation problems for the three main classes of partial differential equations: elliptic, parabolic and hyperbolic. Several numerical approximation methods adapted to each of these examples are analyzed: finite difference, finite element and finite volumes methods, and they are illustrated using numerical simulation results. Although parts of the book are accessible to Bachelor students in mathematics or engineering, it is primarily aimed at Masters students in applied mathematics or computational engineering. The emphasis is on mathematical detail and rigor for the analysis of both continuous and discrete problems.

Release Date: 2013-03-07
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Die Anwendung der Finite-Element-Methode auf nichtlineare technische Probleme hat in den letzten Jahren - auch wegen der stark angestiegenen Rechnerleistung - erheblich zugenommen. Bei nichtlinearen numerischen Simulationen sind verschiedene Aspekte zu berücksichtigen, die das Wissen und Verstehen der theoretischen Grundlagen, der zugehörigen Elementformulierungen sowie der Algorithmen zur Lösung der nichtlinearen Gleichungen voraussetzen. Hierzu soll dieses Buch beitragen, wobei die Bandbreite nichtlinearer Finite-Element-Analysen im Bereich der Festkörpermechanik abgedeckt wird. Das Buch wendet sich an Studierende des Ingenieurwesens im Hauptstudium, an Doktoranden aber auch an praktisch tätige Ingenieure, die Hintergrundwissen im Bereich der Finite-Element-Methode erlangen möchten.

Finite Elements of Nonlinear Continua

Author: J. T. Oden
Publisher: Courier Corporation
ISBN: 9780486317908
Release Date: 2013-04-15
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Geared toward undergraduate and graduate students, this text extends applications of the finite element method from linear problems in elastic structures to a broad class of practical, nonlinear problems in continuum mechanics. It treats both theory and applications from a general and unifying point of view. The text reviews the thermomechanical principles of continuous media and the properties of the finite element method, and then brings them together to produce discrete physical models of nonlinear continua. The mathematical properties of these models are analyzed, along with the numerical solution of the equations governing the discrete model. Though the theory and methods are sufficiently general to be applied to any nonlinear problem, emphasis has been placed on problems in finite elasticity, viscoelasticity, heat conduction, and thermoviscoelasticity. Problems in rarefied gas dynamics and nonlinear partial differential equations are also examined. Other topics include topological properties of finite element models, applications to linear and nonlinear boundary value problems, and discrete models of nonlinear thermomechanical behavior of dissipative media. This comprehensive text is valuable not only to students of structural analysis and continuum mechanics but also to professionals researching the numerical analysis of continua
