PDEs and Finite Elements
Version 10 extends its numerical differential equation-solving capabilities to include the finite element method. Given a PDE, a domain, and boundary conditions, the finite element solution process—including grid and element generation—is fully automated. Stationary and transient solutions to a single PDE or a system of partial differential equations are supported for one, two, and three dimensions.
- Solve partial differential equations over arbitrarily shaped regions. »
- Solve stationary and transient PDEs in one, two, and three dimensions.
