ES 105 Homework: February 20, 2009

Below you will find the discussion and relevant materials for the ES 105 homework assignment due on February 20, 2009.


Our homework assignment for this week, Problem#44, asked us to solve the above system. We were provided: 1) an element file, 2) a node file, 3) a file with boundary nodes and their values, and 4) a README file with details on the problem set. I used LAPACK to perform certain parts of this homework. I compiled my program using GFORTRAN (e.g., gfortran hw6.f -o hw6.out -llapack).
