Finding finite element soluton for a PDE

  1. Jan 9, 2009 #1
    Find the Finite element solution for a equation:
    (∂^2 u)/〖∂x〗^(2 ) +(∂^2 u)/〖∂y〗^2 +λu-c=0
    using linear triangular finite elememts.
    In the above equation u is scalar,λ is a constant and is a body force term(constant).

    The boundary conditons are in terms of prescribed values of the function u or zero flux.

    Have you made any attempt yourself? What exactly is meant by "linear triangular finite elements"?
