Notes: "In the present edition we have decided not to pursue the course of having three contiguous volumes but rather we treat the whole work as an assembly of three separate works, each one capable of being used without the others ... The two further volumes form again separate books ... The first of these is entitled The Finite Element Method in Solid and Structural Mechanics and the second is a text entitled The Finite Element Method in Fluid Dynamics."--Preface.
Description: xiv, 733 pages, [4] pages of plates : illustrations (some color) ; 26 cm
Contents: The standard discrete system and origins of the finite element method --
A direct physical approach to problems in elasticity: plane stress --
Generalization of the finite elements concepts. Galerkin-weighted residual and variational approaches --
'Standard' and 'hierarchical' element shape functions: some general families of C(subscript: 0) continuity --
Mapped elements and numerical interegation --
'infitine' and 'singularity elements' --
Problems in linear elasticity --
Field problems --
heat conduction, electrice and magnetic potential and fluid flow --
Automatic mesh generation --
The patch test, reduced integration, and non-conforming elements --
Mixed formulation and constraints --
complete field methods --
Incompressible problems, mixed methods and other procedures of solution --
Multidomain mixed approximations --
domain decomposition and 'frame' methods --
Errors, recovery processes and error estimates --
Adaptive finite element refinement --
Point based and partition of unity approximations. Extended finite element methods --
The time dimension --
semi-discretization of field and dynamic problems and analytical solution procedures --
The time dimension --
discrete approximation in time --
Coupled systems --
Computer procedures for finite element analysis.
Responsibility: O.C. Zienkiewicz, R.L. Taylor, J.Z. Zhu.

Publisher Synopsis

"It is very difficult to write a book which covers the entire finite element field. ..The authors have made a splendid attempt at a very difficult task. The books remain a tremendous bargain...and Read more...
