A Pragmatic Introduction to the Finite Element Method for Thermal and Stress Analysis

A Pragmatic Introduction to the Finite Element Method for Thermal and Stress Analysis

Written for undergraduate and graduate students, this book provides comprehensive coverage of the Galerkin finite element method for the two important models of continuum mechanics, transient heat conduction and elastodynamics. The salient features of each initial boundary value problem are reviewed, including a thorough description of the boundary conditions; the method of weighted residuals is applied to derive the discrete equations; and clear examples are introduced to illustrate the topics covered.

MATLAB is used throughout the text to solve many application examples. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB M-files is available for download.
