39 Scopus citations


An overview of the development and current state of analytic element method, as well as a brief presentation of the principles on which the technique is based is presented in this article. Illustrations of a few representative analytic elements are also presented. A brief discussion is added of both rotational flow and transient flow. The latter two aspects of the method require further development before they are ready for implementation in computer programs and can be applied to the modeling of groundwater flow.
