    Special Issue on Finite Element Method in Engineering

    The finite element method (FEM) is a numerical method for solving problems of engineering and mathematical physics. Typical problem areas of interest include structural analysis, heat transfer, fluid flow, mass transport, and electromagnetic potential. The analytical solution of these problems generally requires the solution to boundary value problems for partial differential equations. The finite element method formulation of the problem results in a system of algebraic equations. The method yields approximate values of the unknowns at discrete number of points over the domain. To solve the problem, it subdivides a large problem into smaller, simpler parts that are called finite elements. The simple equations that model these finite elements are then assembled into a larger system of equations that models the entire problem. FEM then uses variational methods from the calculus of variations to approximate a solution by minimizing an associated error function.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles on finite element method in engineering. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • FEM and structural analysis
    • FEM and heat transfer
    • Boundary value problems
    • Generalized finite element method
    • Spectral element method
    • Finite element model
    • Finite element simulation

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.

    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Finite Element Method in Engineering” should be chosen during your submission.

    According to the following timetable:
