SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS IN THE PRESENCE OF CONCAVE ELEMENTS AND METHOD OF TESTING OR MANUFACTURING PRODUCTS USING SAME
Inventors: Krishnan Suresh, Bhagyashree Prabhune, Saketh Sridhara
UW-Madison researchers have devised a new computational finite element method to improve the accuracy of finite element analysis in the presence of concave, i.e., tangled, quadrilateral elements. The new method is straightforward to implement in existing finite element software systems.
