Wiley | ISBN 0471107743 | 336 pages | PDF | 38MB

Oriented toward those who will use finite elements (FE) rather than toward theoreticians and computer programmers. Emphasizes the behavior of FE and how to use the FE method successfully. Includes several examples of FE analysis—each one features a critique of the accuracy of the solutions. Contains end-of-chapter exercises and extensive advice about FE modeling.
