Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The error free generation of elements for complex field equations is generally challenging. The process however can be helped via the judicious use of automated systems that allow for the specification of weak forms and interpolation choices and subsequently produce source code that can be compiled into general purpose finite element programs. In this contribution, we illustrate the use of one such system, AceGen, coupled to FEAP and applied to transient linear poroelasticity.
