## Applied Finite Element AnalysisThis book is intended for presenting the basic concepts of Finite Element Analysis applied to several engineering applications. Salient Features: - 1.Covers several modules of elasticity, heat conduction, eigenvalue and fluid flow analysis which are necessary for a student of Mechanical Engineering.
- 2.Finite Element formulations have been presented using both global and natural coordinates. It is important for providing smooth transition form formulation in global coordinates to natural coordinates.
- 3.Special focus has been given to heat conduction problems and fluid flows which are not sufficiently discussed in other textbooks.
- 4.Important factors affecting the formulation have been included as Miscellaneous Topics.
- 5.Several examples have been worked out in order to highlight the applications of Finite Element Analysis.
New to this Edition: Apart from moderately revising the whole text three new chapters “Dynamic Analysis”, “Non-linear Analysis”, “Bending of Thin Plates”, three appendices and short questions and answers have been added in the present edition to make it more useful. |
