Book Description

1 Dec 2005 1591690277 978-1591690276 2
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for engineers and scientists that write their own code 1 Jan 2009
By T. Slavens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great book! I'm a mechanical engineer who was in dire need of writing some heat transfer FE code for work and this book was just what I needed. Geared toward those interested in writing your own code, there's enough theory and mathematics to allow you to extend the code examples yourself. The book starts with easy to grasp 1D calculations and then extends the methods to 2D and 3D situations. Not a book fo those needing a primer for using a commercial program.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book for MEG students and scholars 17 Aug 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Dr. Darrell Pepper is a wonderful professor. I was in his MEG 700 class at UNLV and He is the best professor I have had so far during my graduate school career. This book is also wonderful in expalining difficult concepts clearly and charting difficult flow diagrams.

2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible 6 Feb 2013
By Fernando - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is so boring ans so expensive. Worst of all, there are many many errors. Our teacher had to make a list of all the errors and post it on the website to let us know what the actual method/formula etc were. I don;t recommended. Our class got ripped off for buying this book.
3.0 out of 5 stars it was ok 23 Feb 2013
