Abstract

A model and a system for numerical analysis of continuous media are shown, constructed on the observation that each discretized equation is no other than the relation among the quantities on geometrical elements. The system supports the user to describe and execute such relations compactly, independent of schemes and grids. Based on them, the free surface oscillation of magnetic fluid under a magnetic field constant and homogeneous in the distance was reproduced, through a method starting with integral-type laws of conservation in the cells deformable in accordance with boundaries. The magnetic field and the magnetic fluid were analyzed alternately in con
