H. L. Hunley Finite Element Model

Finite Element Model of H. L. Hunley
Title: Finite Element Model, H. L. Hunley
Caption: Cutaway view of a finite element model (FEM) of H. L. Hunley that was used in simulations to study how Hunley might have been affected by the explosion of its torpedo. FEMs take into account the dimensions, shape, construction, and material properties of a hull in creating a numerical representation that can respond to different conditions applied mathematically in a virtual setting.
