The Finite Element Method Book Excerpt:

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).

The Finite Element Method Book Excerpt:

This self-explanatory guide introduces the basic fundamentals of the Finite Element Method in a clear manner using comprehensive examples. Beginning with the concept of one-dimensional heat transfer, the first chapters include one-dimensional problems that can be solved by inspection. The book progresses through more detailed two-dimensional elements to three-dimensional elements, including discussions on various applications, and ending with introductory chapters on the boundary element and meshless methods, where more input data must be provided to solve problems. Emphasis is placed on the development of the discrete set of algebraic equations. The example problems and exercises in each chapter explain the procedure for defining and organizing the required initial and boundary condition data for a specific problem, and computer code listings in MATLAB and MAPLE are included for setting up the examples within the text, including COMSOL files. Widely used as an introductory Finite Element Method text since 1992 and used in past ASME short courses and AIAA home study courses, this text is intended for undergraduate and graduate students taking Finite Element Methodology courses, engineers working in the industry that need to become familiar with the FEM, and engineers working in the field of heat transfer. It can also be used for distance education courses that can be conducted on the web. Highlights of the new edition include: - Inclusion of MATLAB, MAPLE code listings, along with several COMSOL files, for the example problems within the text. Power point presentations per chapter and a solution manual are also available from the web. - Additional introductory chapters on the boundary element method and the meshless method. - Revised and updated content. -Simple and easy to follow guidelines for understanding and applying the Finite Element Method.

Fundamentals of Finite Element Analysis Book Excerpt:

This new text, intended for the senior undergraduate finite element course in mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering departments, gives students a solid, practical understanding of the principles of the finite element method within a variety of engineering applications. Hutton discusses basic theory of the finite element method while avoiding variational calculus, instead focusing upon the engineering mechanics and mathematical background that may be expected of senior engineering students. The text relies upon basic equilibrium principles, introduction of the principle of minimum potential energy, and the Galerkin finite element method, which readily allows application of finite element analysis to nonstructural problems. The text is software-independent, making it flexible enough for use in a wide variety of programs, and offers a good selection of homework problems and examples. A Book Website is also included, with book illustrations for class presentation; complete problem solutions (password protected); the FEPC 2-D finite element program for student use; instructions on FEPC and its use with the text; and links to commercial FEA sites.

A Practical Guide to Reliable Finite Element Modelling Book Excerpt:

Many books have been written about the finite element method; little however has been written about procedures that assist a practicing engineer in undertaking an analysis in such a way that errors and uncertainties can be controlled. In A Practical Guide to Reliable Finite Element Modelling, Morris addresses this important area. His book begins by introducing the reader to finite element analysis (FEA), covering the fundamental principles of the method, whilst also outlining the potential problems involved. He then establishes consistent methods for carrying out analyses and obtaining accurate and reliable results, concluding with a new method for undertaking error control led analyses which is illustrated by means of two case studies. The book addresses a number of topics that: • Systematically cover an introduction to FEA, how computers build linear-static and linear-dynamic finite element models, the identification of error sources, error control methods and error-controlled analyses. • Enable the reader to support the design of complex structures with reliable, repeatable analyses using the finite element method. • Provide a basis for establishing good practice that could underpin a legal defence in the event of a claim for negligence. A Practical Guide to Reliable Finite Element Modelling will appeal to practising engineers engaged in conducting regular finite element analyses, particularly those new to the field. It will also be a resource for postgraduate students and researchers addressing problems associated with errors in the finite element method.

Finite Element Analysis of Structures through Unified Formulation Book Excerpt:

The finite element method (FEM) is a computational tool widelyused to design and analyse complex structures. Currently,there are a number of different approaches to analysis using theFEM that vary according to the type of structure being analysed:beams and plates may use 1D or 2D approaches, shells and solids 2Dor 3D approaches, and methods that work for one structure aretypically not optimized to work for another. Finite Element Analysis of Structures Through UnifiedFormulation deals with the FEM used for the analysis of themechanics of structures in the case of linear elasticity. Thenovelty of this book is that the finite elements (FEs) areformulated on the basis of a class of theories of structures knownas the Carrera Unified Formulation (CUF). It formulates 1D, 2D and3D FEs on the basis of the same 'fundamental nucleus' that comesfrom geometrical relations and Hooke's law, and presents both 1Dand 2D refined FEs that only have displacement variables as in 3Delements. It also covers 1D and 2D FEs that make use of 'real'physical surfaces rather than ’artificial’ mathematicalsurfaces which are difficult to interface in CAD/CAE software. Key features: Covers how the refined formulation can be easily andconveniently used to analyse laminated structures, such as sandwichand composite structures, and to deal with multifield problems Shows the performance of different FE models through the 'besttheory diagram' which allows different models to be compared interms of accuracy and computational cost Introduces an axiomatic/asymptotic approach that reduces thecomputational cost of the structural analysis without affecting theaccuracy Introduces an innovative 'component-wise' approach to deal withcomplex structures Accompanied by a website hosting the dedicated software packageMUL2 (www.mul2.com) Finite Element Analysis of Structures Through UnifiedFormulation is a valuable reference for researchers andpractitioners, and is also a useful source of information forgraduate students in civil, mechanical and aerospaceengineering.
