Overview

Many students, scientists and researchers have benefited from the practical, programming-oriented style of Programming the Finite Element Method, learning how to develop computer programmes which solve specific engineering problems using the finite element method and to assemble their own computer programmes to produce numerical results to solve these problems.This new fifth edition offers well-considered, timely revisions such as programs and subroutine libraries fully updated to Fortran 2003, which are freely available online, and provides updated material on advances in parallel computing, thermal stress analysis, better return algorithms, better treatment of convection boundary conditions, and the interface with mesh partitioning tools (METIS). As in the previous editions, a wide variety of problem solving capabilities are presented including structural analysis, elasticity and plasticity, construction processes in geomechanics, uncoupled and coupled steady and transient fluid flow and linear and nonlinear solid dynamics. It provides a valuable reference and guide to anyone interested in finite element programming – from learners to experienced programmers.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Intended to help readers assemble computer programs to solve particular engineering problems by using building blocks specifically designed for computations via the finite element technique. Topics: spatial discretization by finite elements, programming finite element computations, static equilibrium of structures and of elastic solids, material nonlinearity, steady state flow, uncoupled and coupled transient problems, eigenvalue problems, and forced vibrations. Several appendices supply the building block subroutines necessary to build the programs described in the book, as well as information on nodal loads, geometry subroutines, and plastic stress-strain matrices and plastic potential.
