Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering


Show Synopsis

Introduction to Finite Engineering is ideal for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students and also as a learning resource to practicing engineers. This book provides an integrated approach to finite element methodologies. The development of finite element theory is combined with examples and exercises involving engineering applications. The steps used in the development of the theory are implemented in complete, self-contained computer programs. While the strategy and philosophy of the previous editions ...

Great Introductory Book/ Extremely Useful Programs

This book provides the theory behind FEA and an understanding what is happening in the background when using a commercial FEA software. It is loaded with software that not only applies the theory in real world examples, but also it very useful for use in industry. FEA can be performed alone using only the software provided and works very well if the individual has some CAD experience (to input the geometry). I have used the software to determine stiffnesses and stresses for applications at work. A more in-depth knowledge of the mathematics involved and the types of elements and meshing provides for a greater appreciation of how the stiffnesses and stresses are being computed and can allow for a more accurate design with less chance of errors.
