Finite Element Analysis - where to in Prime/Mathcad?

Hello All,

I just started chapter 2 on my finite element analysis textbook.

I would like to start with using Prime/Mathcad for FEM computations.

Where do I go to begin this process?

Is there a tutorial you came across for FEM using prime?

Any relevant answers in addition to the questions welcome.

Some elements of FEM (sorry for tautology ) with Prime using you can find here Study 18. Differential Equations in Thermal Engineering

See please figs 18.10 & 18.11.

I hope it help you a little.

Re: Finite Element Analysis - where to in Prime/Mathcad?

Hello Valery,

That was helpfull. I could relate to some of the examples I did in my textbook in chapter 2.

I did not know we had a entry field for FEM something like solver.

I will have to get to a tutorial on this in Prime/Mathcad, if there is one so far had not found.

Hi Karl,

The following topics will be useful for you:

- Re: Finite element method with methcad turorial
- FEM calculations on mathcad

For Mathcad Prime you can order worksheet library - "**Mechanical Engineering**" which includes "**Finite Element Beginnings**" section, here: PTC Webstore
