Finite Element Method

    Project Details

    Description

    Supported by the Danish Research Academy and with the Department of Electromagnetic Systems as the Danish contact institution, L.S. Andersen is pursuing his Ph.D. degree in `Computational Electromagnetics' at the Radiation Laboratory, Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of Michigan. The research is on the Finite Element Method (FEM) which is an attractive numerical technique for the solution of geometrically complicated three-dimensional electromagnetic problems. A novel class of hierarchical tangential vector finite elements (TVFEs) for the expansion of the unknown field has been developed. These TVFEs offer several advantages over the more traditional node based finite elements and the traditional non-hierarchical TVFEs. The new TVFEs have been employed for the analysis of scattering by composite structures and will be used for modelling complex materials such as ferro- and ferri-magnets.
