Finite element method (Gej)

Definition
A method of analysis in which a structure is discretized into elements connected at nodes, the shape of the element displacement field is assumed, partial or complete compatibility is maintained among the element interfaces, and nodal displacements are determined by using energy variational principles or equilibrium methods.
