Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering


The first edition of this book appeared over 20 years ago and the second and third editions followed subsequently. Translations of the book appeared in Spanish, Korean, Greek, and Chinese languages. We received positive feedback from professors who taught from the book and from students and practicing engineers who used the book.
We also benefited from the feedback received from the students in our courses for the past 30 years. We have incorporated several suggestions in this edition. The underlying philosophy of the book is to provide a clear presentation of theory, aspects of problem modeling and implementation into computer programs. The pedagogy of earlier editions has been retained and enhanced in this edition.

WHAT’S NEW IN THIS EDITION
  • Introduction of the superposition principle.
  • Treatment of symmetry and antisymmetry.
  • Additional examples and exercise problems.
  • The patch test.
  • Beams and Frames chapter moved to follow the Truss chapter.
  • Revised Excel VB programs.
  • Programs in JAVASCRIPT to run on web browsers such as IE, Firefox, Google Chrome, or Safari.
  • Executable graphics programs together with the source codes.
  • Additional examples and exercise problems.
New material has been introduced in several chapters. Worked examples and exercise problems have been added to supplement the learning process. Exercise problems stress both fundamental understanding and practical considerations. Problem modeling aspects have been added from early chapters. Principle of superposition is introduced in Chapter 1 . Symmetry and antisymmetry considerations in two-dimensional problems are clearly presented. There are additional examples and exercise problems.

The patch test is discussed and related problems have been added. The included programs have a common structure, which should enable the users to follow the development easily. Programs in JAVASCRIPT have been added. This will enable the users to solve finite element analysis problems using web browsers such as IE, Firefox, Safari, or Google Chrome. Excel VB programs have been revised. All programs have been thoroughly checked. The downloadable program set includes executable versions for programs involving graphics. The programs have been provided in Visual Basic, Microsoft Excel/Visual Basic, MATLAB, and JAVASCRIPT, together with those provided earlier in QBASIC, FORTRAN, and C. The Solutions Manual has been updated.
