Attend a finite element method workshop, Feb. 14

student at a computer

Join the IEEE student branch at ASU in partnership with MathWorks and the IEEE Education Society for a MATLAB workshop on the finite element method, or FEM. This workshop is dedicated to the numerical solutions for partial differential equations, or PDEs, widely used in scientific and engineering fields. There are many different methods for solving PDEs, but two of the most prevalent and user-friendly methods are FEM and the finite difference method, or FDM. The focus of this workshop will be on FEM, providing participants with a comprehensive introduction, detailed examples and hands-on coding experience. The session will include a case study of a beam under stress and delve into applications in electromagnetic scenarios. This interactive session invites active participation and dialogue; attendees are encouraged to come with their laptops.

Jon Loftin is a customer success engineer at MathWorks. His background is in mathematics. More specifically, implementing mathematics in a computer. He holds degrees in mathematics: a bachelor’s degree from Southern Arkansas University, a master’s degree from the University of Arkansas, and a doctoral degree from Texas Tech University. He has had years of teaching experience, from teaching at the Naval Nuclear Power School to teaching as an assistant professor. Loftin’s research focus is building efficient integration techniques in finite element methods.
