Abstract

The Natural Neighbor Interpolant has been used in splines and other visualization techniques this paper proposes its use in Finite Element. In order to reach that goal several modifications are made to both methods, those modifications are detailed in the paper. The result is a very accurate tool, specially suited to deal with non linear problems. To show the above an example of coastal sea bed erosion and sedimentation has been implemented and its results and advantages shown in the paper. Natural Neighbor Interpolant Natural neighbors may be defined as follows: For every set V = {^1,^2, • • • ,Pm} of ra different points on E. And for each i on Im is defined the set of Voronoi poly topes related to V. Every pair of points whose Voronoi poly top
