Hello,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was just reading about implicit vs explicit finite element solvers and have a question about the difference between them.

I understand that the implicit solver has a linear approximation step that is used to force equilibrium. My question is does that make the explicit solver wrong? I am trying to think of situations where the explicit solver would be valid. Most engineering problems would probably like to enforce this equilibrium, right?

What do you think?

Thanks,

Luca
