You seem to be a …You seem to be a illiterate trolling on youtube. Well, this place is not for you. Go entertain yourself with other pointless videos.

this idiot can’t …this idiot can’t even put a sentence together. he’s a neo-nazi. disgusting.

excellent work!excellent work!

pahilario, Once …pahilario, Once you’re done with this series of 33 lectures, you may want to continue on with the Advanced Finite Element Analysis lecture series. I’m on the 10th lecture of this advanced series and I find it very interesting. This advanced series is shorter than the introductory series. It has only 23 lectures.

Excellent lectures …Excellent lectures on Finite Element Method! Thank you for sharing it with us.

NPTEL, you just don’t know how many people all over the world appreciate what you’re doing. VIVA INDIA!.

Thank you for …Thank you for putting this series on the web. It was very useful.

Thanks!!!Awesome …

Thanks!!!

Awesome video!!

This seems to be …This seems to be nice lecture but this part doesnt include anything of value. If you know the concept of finite element method skip this lecture and go to next. This is only an introduction nothing but general knowledge.

WOW! I have no idea …WOW! I have no idea what is going on after lecture 10. When I learned beginners FEA in Canada, it is not this confusing. What’s not so good about lectures is the lack of a text book. I have no way to get references on the mathematical concepts behind the theory. To me this lecture is just a waste of time.

Nice–but i was …Nice–but i was searching for the mathematical equations that govern the finite elements method–needed an explaining view there–and how the systems of differential equations are solved etc etc..However i enjoyed it!

Great Video, helped …Great Video, helped a lot on my thesis on Electrical Engineering.

very very …very very informative thanks for sharing with the world

hi, nice lecture.…
