4 method: finite element method (FEM) FEM - overviewequation:method: finite element method (FEM)transform into an integral equationGreens’ theorem - > reduce the order of derivativesintroduce the finite element approximation for the temperature field with nodal parameters and element basis functionsintegrate over the elements to calculate the element stiffness matrices and RHS vectorsassemble the global equationsapply the boundary conditions
5 FEM – equation, domainthe integral equation:after Greens’ theorem:the triangulation of the domain:
6 FEM – element (triangle) triangle – coordinate system, basis functions:integrate, element stiffness matrix
7 FEM – assembly assembly - > sparse matrix boundary conditions - > the order of the system will be reducedthe solution of the system:direct - „accurate”, „slow”iteratív – „approximate”, „faster”
8 and finally the results: FEM - … the goaland finally the results:Kx=10E-10; Ky=10E+10Kx=10E+10; Ky=10E-10
9 planar domains - > bounded by curves curves - > functions: NURBs – about curvesplanar domains - > bounded by curvescurves - > functions:explicitimplicitparametricalgoal: a curve whichcan represent virtually any desired shape,can give you a great control over the shape,has the ability of controlling the smoothness,is resolution independent and unaffected by changes in position, scale or orientation,fast evaluation.
10 NURB curves: (non uniform rational B-splines) defines: NURBs - propertiesNURB curves: (non uniform rational B-splines)defines:its shape – a set of control points (bi )its smoothness – a set of knots (xi )its curvature – a positive integer - > the order (k)properties:polynomial – we can gain any point of the curve by evaluating k number of k-1 degree polynomialrational – every control point has a weight, which gives its contributions to the curvelocality - > control pointsnon uniform – refers to the knot vector - > possibility to control the exact placement of the endpoints and to create kinks on the curve
11 NURBs – basis, evaluation, locality basis functions:evaluation: ; equation:locality of control points:
13 Desired properties of triangles Mesh – the problemTriangulationDesired properties of trianglesShape – minimum angle: convergenceSize: errorNumber: speed of the solving methodGoalQuality shape trianglesBound on the number of trianglesControl over the density of triangles in certain areas.
14 Mesh – Delaunay triangulation input: set of verticesThe circumcircle of every triangle is “empty”Maximize the minimum angleAlgorithmBasic operation: flipincremental
15 Mesh – constrained Delaunay triangulation Input: planar straight line graphModified empty circleInput edges belong to triangulationAlgorithmDivide-et-imperaFor every edge there is one Delaunay vertexOnly the interior of the domain is triangulated
17 Conclusions Approximation errors Further development spatial discretization: meshnodal interpolationFurther developmentImprove accuracy vs. speed by quadric/cubic element basisTransient equationSame mesh generator, introduce time discretizationOther equationSame mesh generator, improve solver3-DimmensionNew mesh generator, minimal changes on the solverRunning timeParallelization using multigrid mesh
