Summary:
The finite element method (FEM) is an analysis tool for problem-solving used throughout applied mathematics, engineering, and scientific computing. Finite Elements for Analysis and Design provides a thoroughlyrevised and up-to-date account of this important tool and its numerous applications, with added emphasis on basic theory. Numerous worked examples are included to illustrate the material.

Abstract:

This text works on the premise that it is difficult to understand the theory of finite element analysis techniques until they can be successfully implemented on a computer program. Thus, the book  Read more...
