The finite analytic (FA) method is an Eulerian method that solves the differential equations for CFD/HT by representing the solution domain as a series of homogeneous, constant parameter elements. Within each of these elements an algebraic form of the analytic solution of a linearized form of the equations is constructed. The solution at a nodal value in the interior of each element is...
