Transient heat conduction
Transient heat conduction is not covered in the course book and since this is needed for solving the assignment a short note covering this topic can be downloaded here. The text briefly shows how the FE formulation for transient heat conduction is established. Also a very simple time discretization procedure is discussed.
Variational principles (FHLF01 and FHLF10)
The topic covered in the lecture on variational principles can be found in the following examples and chapter 8.1,8.2 and 8.4 in 'Kontinuerliga system, Sparr och Spanne'.
