7 What is Finite Element Method (FEM) Software? FEM software is a design tool for engineers and physicists, utilizing rapid computations to solve large problems insoluble by analytical, closed-form expressions The “Finite Element Method” involves subdividing a large problem into individually simple constituent units which are each soluble via direct analytical methods, then reassembling the solution for the entire problem space as a matrix of simultaneous equations FEM software can solve mechanical (stress, strain, vibration), aerodynamic or fluid flow, thermal, or electromagnetic problems Suggested course: ELCT 891H, computational electromagnetic.

8 FEM Problem Constraints Geometry can be arbitrary and 3-dimensional Model ‘subdivision’ is generally accomplished by use of tetrahedral or hexahedral (brick) elements which are defined to fill any arbitrary 3D volume Boundary Conditions (internal and external) can be varied to account for different characteristics, symmetry planes, etc. Size constraints are predominantly set by available memory and disk space for storage and solution of the problem matrix Solution is created in the frequency domain , assuming steady-state behavior
