    Finite Element Method

    Hi,

    I have started learning finite element and i had a question avout it. I know that the finite element solution if better when applied to the nodes than inbetween, but i am not sure why this is.

    Is this because you have specified the nodes but not what is inbetween?

    Hi,

    I would need to dig my notes on this to find the answer to this question. Did you manage to find an answer before I start digging?
