Can anyone tell me for which problems you should use these numerical methods:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

- finite difference method

- finite element method

- boundary element method

- method of moments

For example I read that finite element method is often used for car crash simulations, and that it gives very good results, but what about other methods, when you would use them? Any real-life example?

Thanks in advance. ;)
