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

I have a rather silly question.

As we all know only thecompatiblematrices can be multiplied. My derivation of some Finite Element formulation has, however, led me to the multiplication of twoincompatible matrices.

I was wondering if we could make these incompatible matrices, compatible by some factorization techniques. Has anyone ever encountered such a problem?

I appreciate if someone could help me in this respect.

Regards,
