The difference between the H and P methods in FEM

  1. Mar 24, 2009 #1
    Hi

    I want to know what's the difference between the H and P method solutions for static analysis problems, if you can explain it to me?



    Thanks for your help

    H method is refining the number of elements to get a better fit.
    P method is increasing the order of ploynomial of the element to get a better fit.
