This book has been thoroughly revised and updated to reflect developments since the third edition, with an emphasis on structural mechanics. Coverage is up-to-date without making the treatment highly specialized and mathematically difficult. Basic theory is clearly explained to the reader, while advanced techniques are left to thousands of references available, which are cited in the text.
This textbook introduces finite element analysis, moving gradually from simple concepts to more advanced theories. Practical matters are also discussed, including modeling for finite element analysis, checking computed results for errors, and revising analyses. Structural mechanics are emphasized. Dynamics, nonlinearity, and heat transfer are also covered. Approximately 500 analytic problems are included. The authors teach engineering physics and engineering mechanics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Robert D. Cooke received his Ph.D. in Theoretical andApplied Mechancis from the University of Illinois in 1963. Sincethen he has been at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where heis now a professor in the Department of Engineering Physics. Hisinterests include stress analysis and finite element methods. Inaddition to the present book, he is author of Finite ElementModeling for Stress Analysis (Wiley, 1995) and AdvancedMechanics of Materials (2nd Edtion, Prentice Hall, 1999, withWarren C. Young).
David S. Malkus received his Ph.D. from Boston Universityin 1976. He spent two years at the National Bureau of Standards andseven years in the Mathematics Department of Illinois Institute ofTechnology. He is now Professor of Engineering Mechanics at theUnivrersity of Wisconsin-Madison. His research interests concernapplication of the finite element method to problems of structuraland continuum mechanics, in particular the flow of non-Newtonianfluids. He is a member of the Rheology Research Center (Universityof Wisconsin-Madison) and the Society of Rheology.
