Numerical Solution of Two-Dimensional Electrostatic Field Problems

By Shalangwa D., A. and Donard, J. Z.

Abstract

In this paper we compute voltage distribution and charge flux for two-dimensional surface with a curved edge using finite element method. The ease with which the finite element method is implemented on a digital computer system and its flexibility which allows for choosing any desired degree of approximation without having to reformulate the problem is the reason for its consideration in this work. The numerical solutions were obtained using maple software package

 

Key Words : Finite element method, Partial differential equation, Two-dimensional surface.
