|Title:||Development of Smoothed Finite Element Method (SFEM)||Authors:||NGUYEN THOI TRUNG||Keywords:||Smoothed Finite Element Methods (S-FEM), CS-FEM, NS-FEM, ES-FEM, FS-FEM, alpha-FEM||Issue Date:||5-Aug-2009||Citation:||NGUYEN THOI TRUNG (2009-08-05). Development of Smoothed Finite Element Method (SFEM). ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||To overcome shortcomings of the finite element method (FEM), this thesis focuses on formulating and developing five new FEM models, including four smoothed FEM (S-FEM) models and one alpha-FEM model by combining the existing standard FEM and the strain smoothing technique. The results of the research showed four crucial contributions: (1) Five new numerical methods are promising to provide more feasible options for numerical methods, especially for methods using triangular and tetrahedral elements; (2) S-FEM models give more the freedom and convenience in constructing shape functions, and also in using distorted elements and n-sided polygonal elements; (3) NS-FEM which possesses interesting properties of an equilibrium FEM model is promising to provide a much simpler tool to estimate the quality of the solution (global error, bounds of solutions, etc) by combining itself with FEM; (4) alpha-FEM has a very meaningful contribution in providing more the reference benchmark solutions wi||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/16839|
