Galerkin Method for Solving Twelfth Order BVPs

Volume: 1 Issue: 1
Year of Publication: 2019
Authors: Sreenivasulu Ballem


We deployed a numerical method to solve a twelfth order BVPs in terms of finite element Galerkin approach with the sextic B-splines as basis functions. The basis functions have been redefined into another set of basis functions, governing approximate solution satisfies given boundary conditions. To know the efficiency of the proposed numerical method, we have been examined the numerical scheme by applying this scheme on some twelfth order linear and nonlinear BVPs and these results compare with the exact solution available in the literature.
