The idea of achieving convergence by increasing the polynomial degree (p) of the approximating functions on a fixed mesh, known as the p-version of the finite element method, was at odds with the prevailing view in the finite element research community in the 1960s and 70s. But why?
The term “simulation” is often used interchangeably with “finite element modeling” in the engineering literature and marketing materials. It is important to understand the difference between the two.
The development of the finite element method (FEM) consists of two main branches: the art of finite element modeling and the science of finite element analysis. Learn why in this blog.
