Numerical solution of Plateau’s problem of minimal surface using non-variational finite element method. The paper aims to discuss this issue.
An efficient algorithm is proposed for the computation of minimal surfaces and numerical results are presented.
The solutions obtained here are examined for different cases of non-linearity and are found sufficiently accurate.
The manuscript provide the non-variational solution for Plateau’s problem. Thus it has a good value in engineering application.
