OPTIMUM MESH GENERATION FOR THE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD IN TWO DIMENSIONAL ELASTICITY PROBLEM AND ITS APPLICATION TO SHIP STRUCTURE

Simple and practical mesh optimization is proposed for the finite element analysis of the two-dimensional elasticity problem. Boundary-fitted coordinate systems using biharmonics are used to generate the mesh in order to minimize energy norm error based on stress discontinuity on element boundaries. The method is applied to the transverse ring of a tanker.
