## The Fundamental Physical Bases of the WR Approach (and, Consequently, of FEM) in General

Mon, 2009-02-02 04:54 - Ajit R. JadhavIt has been quite some time (more than 1.5 years) that I had touched upon the topic of the physical bases of FEM in general, and of the general weighted residual (WR) approach in particular, at iMechanica (see here).

The position I then took was that there is no known physical basis at all for the WR approach---despite its loving portrayals in mathematical terms, or its popularity.
