Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The differential quadrature element method (DQEM) and differential quadrature finite difference method (DQFDM) have been proposed by the author. The DQ, GDQ and mapping technique are used in developing DQEM and DQFDM. The two novel numerical methods are effective for solving generic continuum mechanics problems. In this paper, these two methods will be used to solve some high gradient continuum mechanics problems such as stress concentration of solid mechanics problems, highly concentrated heat flux in the heat transfer problem,... , etc.
