Abstract

This work presents how approximate solution methods were introduced in a graduate level course of Theory of Elasticity. The three methods introduced are the finite difference method, the finite element method, and the boundary element method. All methods are exemplified by the problem of a thick-walled cylinder subject to internal pressure with an axisymmetric response. Choosing a single problem to introduce the three methods demonstrates accuracy and efficacy of each method.
