Comments on Variational Method and Energy Method in Computational Mechanics
Department of Mechatronics, Foshan University, PRC, 528000
The article demonstrates that the energy method utilized in computational mechanics is a special form of the variational method through mathematical deduction and comparison to the two methods. The result discloses a basic fact that mechanical computations performed by different methods are intrinsically related in some way. The article also points out that a deep study on this intrinsic relation is necessary and helpful to guarantee loyalty of the computational results to the computed objectives.
