 The invention of the finite element method, the method originated from the need to solve complex elasticity and structural analysis problems incivil and aeronautical engineering. Its development can be traced back to the work by A. Hrennikoff [2] and R. Courant.[3] In China, in the later 1950s and early 1960s, based on the computations of dam constructions, K. Feng proposed a systematic numerical method for solving partial differential equations. The method was called the finite difference method based on variation principle, which was another independent invention of finite element method.
