Market_Desc: Special Features: · A new, introductory chapter provides very simple concepts of finite element analysis and discusses its practical application. · Many chapters have been modified and improved, including new chapters on modeling, error estimation and convergence and modernization of elastic-plastic problems. · Practical use and applications receive greater emphasis, but without sacrificing attention to basic theory. About The Book: 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.

Finite Element Methods form an indispensable part of engineering analysis and design. The strength of FEM is the ease and elegance with which it handles the boundary conditions. This compact and well-organized text presents a comprehensive analysis of Finite Element Methods (FEM). The book gives a clear picture of structural, torsion, free-vibration, heat transfer and fluid flow problems. It also provides detailed description of equations of equilibrium, stress-strain relations, interpolation functions and element design, symmetry and applications of FEM. The text is a synthesis of both the physical and the mathematical characteristics of finite element methods. A question bank at the end of each chapter comprises descriptive and objective type questions to drill the students in self-study. KEY FEATURES Includes step-by-step procedure to solve typical problems using ANSYS® software. Gives numerical problems in SI units. Elaborates shaper functions for higher-order elements. Furnishes a large number of worked-out examples and solved problems. This profusely illustrated, student-friendly text is intended primarily for undergraduate students of Mechanical/Production/Civil and Aeronautical Engineering. By a judicious selection of topics, it can also be profitably used by postgraduate students of these disciplines. In addition, practising engineers and scientists should find it very useful besides students preparing for competitive exams.

This much-anticipated second edition introduces the fundamentals of the finite element method featuring clear-cut examples and an applications-oriented approach. Using the transport equation for heat transfer as the foundation for the governing equations, this new edition demonstrates the versatility of the method for a wide range of applications, including structural analysis and fluid flow. Much attention is given to the development of the discrete set of algebraic equations, beginning with simple one-dimensional problems that can be solved by inspection, continuing to two- and three-dimensional elements, and ending with three chapters describing applications. The increased number of example problems per chapter helps build an understanding of the method to define and organize required initial and boundary condition data for specific problems. In addition to exercises that can be worked out manually, this new edition refers to user-friendly computer codes for solving one-, two-, and three-dimensional problems. Among the first FEM textbooks to include finite element software, the book contains a website with access to an even more comprehensive list of finite element software written in FEMLAB, MAPLE, MathCad, MATLAB, FORTRAN, C++, and JAVA - the most popular programming languages. This textbook is valuable for senior level undergraduates in mechanical, aeronautical, electrical, chemical, and civil engineering. Useful for short courses and home-study learning, the book can also serve as an introduction for first-year graduate students new to finite element coursework and as a refresher for industry professionals. The book is a perfect lead-in to Intermediate Finite Element Method: Fluid Flow and Heat and Transfer Applications (Taylor & Francis, 1999, Hb 1560323094).

Introduces the basic concepts of FEM in an easy-to-use format so that students and professionals can use the method efficiently and interpret results properly Finite element method (FEM) is a powerful tool for solving engineering problems both in solid structural mechanics and fluid mechanics. This book presents all of the theoretical aspects of FEM that students of engineering will need. It eliminates overlong math equations in favour of basic concepts, and reviews of the mathematics and mechanics of materials in order to illustrate the concepts of FEM. It introduces these concepts by including examples using six different commercial programs online. The all-new, second edition of Introduction to Finite Element Analysis and Design provides many more exercise problems than the first edition. It includes a significant amount of material in modelling issues by using several practical examples from engineering applications. The book features new coverage of buckling of beams and frames and extends heat transfer analyses from 1D (in the previous edition) to 2D. It also covers 3D solid element and its application, as well as 2D. Additionally, readers will find an increase in coverage of finite element analysis of dynamic problems. There is also a companion website with examples that are concurrent with the most recent version of the commercial programs. Offers elaborate explanations of basic finite element procedures Delivers clear explanations of the capabilities and limitations of finite element analysis Includes application examples and tutorials for commercial finite element software, such as MATLAB, ANSYS, ABAQUS and NASTRAN Provides numerous examples and exercise problems Comes with a complete solution manual and results of several engineering design projects Introduction to Finite Element Analysis and Design, 2nd Edition is an excellent text for junior and senior level undergraduate students and beginning graduate students in mechanical, civil, aerospace, biomedical engineering, industrial engineering and engineering mechanics.
