Its main objective is to provide a general overview offinite element method specially, variational formulation of partial differen-tial equations, and to illustrate how to get started with FEniCs through aseries of simple examples. The serious of examples demonstrate how to de-fine a variational formulation of partial differential equations, how to dealpartial differential equations with different boundary conditions, how todeal with nonlinear partial differential equations, time dependent partialdifferential equations with in FEniCs. It also deals how to generate meshusing finite element mesh generator called Gmsh and how to use that tosolve problems in FEniCs. Finally, apply our gained knowledge to solvethe Gray-Scott model problem and to deal real physical model problemsfrom groundwater flow modeling. nb_NO dc.language nor nb_NO dc.publisher Institutt for matematiske fag nb_NO dc.subject ntnudaim:6378 no_NO dc.subject MSMNFMA matematikk (for international students) no_NO dc.subject no_NO dc.title FINITE ElEMENT METHODS APPLIED TO GROUNDWATER MODEL PROBLEMS, IMPLEMENTED WITH THE USE OF FEniCs nb_NO dc.title.alternative FINITE ElEMENT METHODS APPLIED TO GROUNDWATER MODEL PROBLEMS, IMPLEMENTED WITH THE USE OF FEniCs nb_NO dc.type Master thesis nb_NO dc.source.pagenumber 59 nb_NO dc.contributor.department Norges teknisk-naturvitenskapelige universitet, Fakultet for informasjonsteknologi, matematikk og elektroteknikk, Institutt for matematiske fag nb_NO
