Finite Element Procedures, Part 2BASIC APPROACH: Comprehensive  this text explores the "full range" of finite element methods used in engineering practice for actual applications in computeraided design. It provides not only an introduction to finite element methods and the commonality in the various techniques, but explores stateoftheart methods as well  with a focus on what are deemed to become "classical techniques"  procedures that will be "standard and authoritative" for finite element analysis for years to come.
