Finite Element Procedures, Part 2

Front Cover
Prentice Hall, 1996 - Engineering mathematics - 1037 pages
BASIC APPROACH: Comprehensive -- this text explores the "full range" of finite element methods used in engineering practice for actual applications in computer-aided design. It provides not only an introduction to finite element methods and the commonality in the various techniques, but explores state-of-the-art 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.


  • presents in sufficient depth and breadth elementary concepts AND advanced techniques in statics, dynamics, solids, fluids, linear and nonlinear analysis.
  • emphasizes both the physical and mathematical characteristics of procedures.
  • presents some important mathematical conditions on finite element procedures.
  • contains an abundance of worked-out examples and various complete program listings.
  • includes many exercises/projects that often require the use of a computer program.
