Finite Elements. Computational Engineering Sciences
Approaches computational engineering sciences from the perspective of engineering applications Uniting theory with hands-on computer practice, this book gives readers a firm appreciation of the error mechanisms and control that underlie discrete approximation implementations in the engineering sciences
Computational aspects of the method are provided on a companion website facilitating engineering implementation in an easy way.
Key features: Illustrative examples include heat conduction, structural mechanics, mechanical vibrations, heat transfer with convection and radiation, fluid mechanics and heat and mass transport Takes a cross-discipline continuum mechanics viewpoint Includes Matlab toolbox and .m data files on a companion website, immediately enabling hands-on computing in all covered disciplines Website also features eight topical lectures from the author’s own academic courses It provides a holistic view of the topic from covering the different engineering problems that can be solved using finite element to how each particular method can be implemented on a computer
