Available in PDF Format

Book Details

ISBN: 0750678283

Publisher: Elsevier Science & Technology Books

Pub. Date: December 2004

The objective of this book is to introduce the various aspects of finite element method as applied to engineering problems in a systematic manner. It is attempted to give details of development of each of the techniques and ideas from basic principles. New concepts are

illustrated with simple examples wherever possible. Several Fortran computer programs are given with example applications to serve the following purposes:

- to enable the student to understand the computer implementation of the theory

developed;

- to solve specific problems;

- to indicate procedure for the development of computer programs for solving any

other problem in the same area.
