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 has been retained, the¿Fourth Edition has been updated and improved to include new material on additional topics.
A textbook for a one-semester senior undergraduate or early graduate course. Integrates finite element theory, problem formulation, and computer analysis. Updates the 1991 edition with some new material and examples, but mostly by upgrading the accompanying software, which has been rewritten, is now on a 3.5" disk for IBM-compatibles, and includes versions in C and FORTRAN as well as the original BASIC.
