- In this presentation we survey the advances that we have recently accomplished for the effective analysis of solids and structures, specifically for wave propagations and transient solutions, the analysis of shells, improved stress calculations, the use of interpolation covers, and the solution of the full Maxwell’s equations. The structures may be subjected to complex fluid flows and electromagnetic effects. We briefly give the theoretical developments for the formulations, a few illustrative solutions, and conclude by mentioning some further exciting research challenges.
