Stiffness Matrix

  Preliminary Steps for Analysis The main difference between isogeometric analysis and finite element analysis is the type of the shape functions used for the approximation of the solution field. The substitution of Lagrange polynomials with NURBS (widely utilized in the CAD community) leads to several special characteristics of isogeometric analysis. Shape Function Finite element method shape functions are usually…
