The finite element method is a widely used classical numerical method. It can be used for the very accurate solution of many complex engineering problems. The FEM was developed many years ago for the analysis of aircraft structural problems. The potentialities of this method for the solution of various engineering and applied science problems were recognized and the above stated technique is still considered to be one of the best methods for solving many practical engineering problems.
