 October 28, 2007, 22:31 FEM & FVM #1 Rikio Guest   Posts: n/a Hi,all Physical quantities will be calculated on the nodes within FVM(Finite Volume Method). And interpolation will be employed to calculate the values on the boundaries. But I do not know how does FEM(Finite Element Method) works. Anyone can explain that? THANKS IN ADVANCE!

FVM works with the Mass Conservation Principle, while FEM works with "beam descomposition" philosophy. Both methods are really different, the math and the methodology are also different.Cheers, Santiago
