The Mathematics of Finite Elements and Applications V is the summary of invited papers and the abstracts of the poster papers in the fifth conference on The Mathematics of Finite Elements and Applications, MAFELAP 1984, held at Brunei University in May 1984. Said symposium discussedfield of finite elements, including its techniques, theory, application, and implementation . The coverage of the book includes a wide range of mathematical topics under finite elements, including its method, calculations, analysis, and applications. The book also encompasses topics of computer-generated geometric design interface; modeling in an integrated computer design; and determination of dimensional field lines. Acidized channels in chalk formations, elastodynamics, stress analysis, and infinite elements are also discussed. The book also looks at isoparametric and hierarchical element procedures and Petrov-Galerkin methods. The text is recommended for mathematicians, engineers, and those in the field of information technology who would like to know more about finite elements and its applications in their respective fields.
