 January 27, 2000, 01:21 Difference between FD, FV, FEA ??? #1 Snow Guest   Posts: n/a Here looks a right place for this question. What's the difference between Finite difference(FD), Finite Volume(FV), FEA(Finite element analysis) ? Thanks for inputs. Snow

 January 27, 2000, 03:48 Re: Difference between FD, FV, FEA ??? #2 Abdul Hafid M. Guest   Posts: n/a To answer your question, try to read chapter 3 of Shaw, C. T. book "Using Computational Fluid Dynamics", 1992. Its very fundamental book in CFD. Hafid

Ferziger, J.H., Peric M.: Computational Methods for Fluid Dynamics, 1996 is a famous CFD book. It also has some simple programs. (no use for practical problems)

FD is the Finite Difference Method FV is the Finite Volume Method FEA is the Finite Element Analisys Good luck Carlos Vilela
