Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering
Now in its third edition, "Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering" provides an integrated approach to finite methodologies through the integration of exercises and examples involving engineering applications. The steps used in the development of the theory are implemented in complete, self-contained computer programs, while retaining the strategies and philosophies of previous editions. It serves as a primary textbook for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students as well as an invaluable learning resource for practicing engineers. "Hallmark Features: "

The book is an excellent document for Engineers who have interest in the Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
The authors took the time to present a great book for beginners in FEA as well for the well experienced, moreover, they are presenting the source code for the different topics in the book, with very well explained examples.
The source codes are in C, Excel VBA, FORTRAN, MatLab, QuickBasic and Visual Basic. First book I have had with these variaties. The book is presenting the examples in one of the simplest programming languages ever, Visual Basic.
As working with any other source code, you need to make your personal adjustments, but they worked very well for me.
