Finite element method in excel
 
Hi,

I am working on a problem that requires me to solve a 1D hydraulic model involving a simple slope using finite element analysis (explicit solution scheme using the kinematic equations). I am really having a lot of difficulty in understanding what to do


Additionally, I am going to use excel for my solution, but I have no idea of how to set up my spreadsheet.

can anyone give me any advice or point me in the right direction to some resources that will clear things up for me?

thanks in advance

Hello,

read a tutorial about VBA programming in Excel, there plenty of good resources on Internet.

As a side note, "programming" a FEM app in Excel is a very bad idea.
