The Meshless Method: An Emerging Method of Numerical Analysis

The most commonly used numerical method for analysis, simulation, and calculation is the finite element method. It is often used to simulate force structure problems in mechanical performance analysis, as well as in the strength analysis of civil and structural engineering projects. The finite element method is popular because it is able to flexibly deal with engineering problems involving complex geometric figures, different material compositions, and different forms of load. For this reason ...more
