Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description


"Recommended for upper division undergraduates and above." ( CHOICE, February 2008)

From the Back Cover

Developed from the authors, combined total of 50 years undergraduate and graduate teaching experience, this book presents the finite element method formulated as a general–purpose numerical procedure for solving engineering problems governed by partial differential equations. 

Focusing on the formulation and application of the finite element method through the integration of finite element theory, code development, and software application, the book is both introductory and self–contained, as well as being a hands–on experience for any student.

This authoritative text on Finite Elements:

  • Adopts a generic approach to the subject, and is not application specific
  • In conjunction with a web–based chapter, it integrates code development, theory, and application in one book
  • Provides an accompanying Web site that includes ABAQUS Student Edition, Matlab data and programs, and instructor resources
  • Contains a comprehensive set of homework problems at the end of each chapter
  • Produces a practical, meaningful course for both lecturers, planning a finite element module, and for students using the text in private study.

A First Course in Finite Elements is the ideal practical introductory course for junior and senior undergraduate students from a variety of science and engineering disciplines.  The accompanying advanced topics at the end of each chapter also make it suitable for courses at graduate level, as well as for practitioners who need to attain or refresh their knowledge of finite elements through private study.
