Sparse matrices are occasionally encountered during solutions of various problems by means of numerical methods, such as the finite element method. ELLPACK sparse matrix storage scheme, one of the most widely used methods due to its implementation ease, is investigated in this study. The scheme uses excessive memory due to its definition. For the conventional finite element method, where the node elements are used, the excessive memory caused by redundant entries in the ELLPACK sparse matrix storage scheme becomes negligible for large scale problems. On the other hand, our analyses show that the redundancy is still considerable for the occasions where facet or edge elements have to be used.

Least squares differential quadrature time integration scheme in the dual reciprocity boundary element method solution of convection-diffusion problems
Bozkaya, Canan (2005-03-18)
The least squares differential quadrature method (DQM) is used for solving the ordinary differential equations in time, obtained from the application of the dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) for the spatial partial derivatives in convection-diffusion type problems. The DRBEM enables us to use the fundamental solution of the Laplace equation which is easy to implement computationally. The time derivative and the convection terms are considered as the nonhomogeneity in the equation which are ap...
MUTUAL COUPLING EFFECTS OF FINITE RECTANGULAR PHASED-ARRAYS
YAVUZ, H; BUYUKDURA, OM (1994-04-14)
A rigorous integral equation formulation for the analysis of a phased array of flangemounted waveguide apertures is given for a finite number of elements and nonuniform spacings. The resulting set of ihtegrd equations is reduced to a matrix equation called the coupling matrix which relates the coefficients of all the modes in all the waveguides to one another. The solution then yields the dominant mode reflection coefficient, coefficients of scattered modes and hence the field in each waveguide. The blockTo...
Least-squares finite element solution of Euler equations with adaptive mesh refinement
Akargün, Hayri Yiğit; Sert, Cüneyt; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
Least-squares finite element method (LSFEM) is employed to simulate 2-D and axisymmetric flows governed by the compressible Euler equations. Least-squares formulation brings many advantages over classical Galerkin finite element methods. For non-self-adjoint systems, LSFEM result in symmetric positive-definite matrices which can be solved efficiently by iterative methods. Additionally, with a unified formulation it can work in all flight regimes from subsonic to supersonic. Another advantage is that, the me...
Modified iterative methods for linear systems of equations
Karasözen, Bülent (1998-01-01)
An extension of the modified Jacobi and Gauss-Seidel methods for systems of linear equations has been introduced. The convergence properties of the proposed methods have been analyzed and compared with the classical and modified methods. The numerical results obtained for some linear systems show that the extended modified methods are superior to other modified iterative methods.
