Abstract : The thrust of this work was the development of efficient and accurate finite element methods for flow problems. Specific applications include periodic acoustic problems, potential flow problems and incompressible viscous flows. However, the theoretical analyses carried out also have a direct bearing on the approximation of problems in other areas, e.g., electromagnetics and elasticity. For the particular fluids applications mentioned above, computer codes implementing the algorithms have also been developed.
