Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Computational mechanics is the discipline concerned with the use of computational methods to study phenomena governed by the principles of mechanics. Before the emergence of computational science as a "third way" besides theoretical and experimental sciences, computational mechanics was widely considered to be a sub-discipline of applied mechanics. It is now considered to be a sub-discipline within computational science. Computational mechanics is interdisciplinary. Its three pillars are mathematics, computer science, and mechanics. Computational fluid dynamics, computational thermodynamics, Computational electromagnetics, computational solid mechanics are some of the many specializations within CM. The areas of mathematics most related to computational mechanics are partial differential equations, linear algebra and numerical analysis. The most popular numerical methods used are the finite element, finite difference, and boundary element methods in order of dominance.show more
