This practical textbook is the revised edition of the author’s classic and includes the state-of-the-art methods in finite element procedures. The revision is thorough and comprehensive to make the book more broad based.The text explores the full range of finite element methods, but concentrates on certain finite element procedures such as techniques that are essential and often used in engineering practice. Written by a highly respected author on the subject, the text presents, in sufficient details, both the elementary concepts and advanced techniques while presenting statics, dynamics, solids, fluids, linear and nonlinear analysis. Adequate attention is given to both the physical and mathematical characteristics of the procedures. Throughout the text, a representative selection of worked-out examples and complete programmes listings are provided, besides exercises for each chapter.
