Post by minhaj021 »


I want to know is the calculations are computed using Newton-Rapshod-method in Elmer FEM? If so can you suggest me a reference?

Hi Minhaj,

Newton(-Raphson) is available in several modules. It cannot be a generic library functionality as it must be tailored for each equation. For example, in N-S equation inertia may be treated by Newton linearization, in HeatSolver the radiation (T^4), and for the AV solver the B-H curve. You will find details on the applicability in the Models Manual.
