9.2.4 Linear Solver
In any (implicit) finite element code like FEBio, the linear solver does most of the work. The type of linear equation that has to be solved depends on the type of analysis, but some of the settings can be user-controlled. The following settings can be changed.
- Matrix storage: Some algorithms have both a symmetric form or an unsymmetric form. This option will set the preferred matrix format.
