The Finite Element Method using MATLAB Hyochoong Bang, Young W. Kwon
I don't deal with advanced math every day, so a tutorial that introduces me to math needed to understand FEM will be great. While  uses only free softwares for 3D reconstruction, present work optionally makes use of MATLAB (which is a commercial software) also. Yoon Hyuk Kim,1 Mengying Wu,1 and Kyungsoo Kim2. Stress Analysis of Osteoporotic Lumbar Vertebra Using Finite Element Model with Microscaled Beam-Shell Trabecular-Cortical Structure. The numerical experiments using FEM need high accuracy to get reliable results. However high accuracy will Now I am developing and maintaining a software AFEM@matlab which is a MATLAB package of adaptive finite element methods for stationary and evolution partial differential equations in two spatial dimensions [13, 3]. Could you recommend some good articles/notes/tutorials on finite element method (FEM)? When you get into the realm of hundreds or thousands of elements, there are much better ways to do it, which computational packages like MATLAB take full advantage of. I did my Master's Degree in Heat Transfer and Design Optimization, and the tools I learned through that included finite element methods for structural, thermal, and fluid flow analysis, as well as the mathematical underpinnings of those methods and the numerical implementation. Tim is a professor at the University of Florida, and is the author or co-author of many of our sparse matrix functions (lu, chol, much of sparse backslash, ordering methods such as amd and colamd, and other functions such as etree and symbfact). In order to mimic the irregular structure of the trabecular struts, the lattice models were perturbed by randomly moving vertex nodes with MATLAB (MathWorks Inc., MA, USA) (Figure 1(b)) [20, 22].

My main research interest is the theoretical analysis and practical application of Adaptive Finite Element Methods (AFEMs).
