NURBS-Enhanced Finite Element Method (NEFEM)

By Ruben Sevilla, Sona Fernández-Méndez and Antonio Huerta

Abstract

The development of NURBS-Enhanced Finite Element Method (NEFEM) is revisited. This technique allows a seamless integration of the CAD boundary representation of the domain and the finite element method (FEM). The importance of the geometrical model in finite element simulations is addressed and the benefits and potential of NEFEM are discussed and compared with respect to other curved finite element techniques
