A First Course in Finite Elements

Written for undergraduate and graduate students in science and engineering, this book provides comprehensive coverage on the formation and application of the finite element method. The book presents the finite element method formulated as a general-purpose numerical procedure for solving engineering problems, governed by partial differential equations. Topics covered include the direct approach for discrete systems, strong and weak forms for one-dimensional problems, and the finite element formulations for vector field problems.
