The book endeavors to strike a balance between mathematical and numerical coverage of a wide range of topics in fi nite element analysis. It strives to provide an introduction, especially for undergraduates and graduates, to fi nite element analysis and its applications. Topics include advanced calculus, differential equations, vector analysis, calculus of variations, fi nite difference methods, fi nite element methods and time-stepping schemes. The book also emphasizes the application of important numerical methods with dozens of worked examples. The applied topics include elasticity, heat transfer, and pattern formation. A few self-explanatory Matlab programs provide a good start for readers to try some of the methods and to apply the methods and techniques to their own modelling problems with some modifi cations. The book will perfectly serve as a textbook in fi nite element analysis, computational mathematics, mathematical modelling, and engineering computations.

Numerical analysis presents different faces to the world. For mathematicians it is a bona fide mathematical theory with an applicable flavour. For scientists and engineers it is a practical, applied subject, part of the standard repertoire of modelling techniques. For computer scientists it is a theory on the interplay of computer architecture and algorithms for real-number calculations. The tension between these standpoints is the driving force of this book, which presents a rigorous account of the fundamentals of numerical analysis of both ordinary and partial differential equations. The point of departure is mathematical but the exposition strives to maintain a balance between theoretical, algorithmic and applied aspects of the subject. In detail, topics covered include numerical solution of ordinary differential equations by multistep and Runge-Kutta methods; finite difference and finite elements techniques for the Poisson equation; a variety of algorithms to solve large, sparse algebraic systems; methods for parabolic and hyperbolic differential equations and techniques of their analysis. The book is accompanied by an appendix that presents brief back-up in a number of mathematical topics. Dr Iserles concentrates on fundamentals: deriving methods from first principles, analysing them with a variety of mathematical techniques and occasionally discussing questions of implementation and applications. By doing so, he is able to lead the reader to theoretical understanding of the subject without neglecting its practical aspects. The outcome is a textbook that is mathematically honest and rigorous and provides its target audience with a wide range of skills in both ordinary and partial differential equations.

Explore a Unified Treatment of the Finite Element Method The finite element method has matured to the point that it can accurately and reliably be used, by a careful analyst, for an amazingly wide range of applications. With expanded coverage and an increase in fully solved examples, the second edition of Finite Element Analysis: Thermomechanics of Solids presents a unified treatment of the finite element method in theremomechanics, from the basics to advanced concepts. An Integrated Presentation of Critical Technology As in the first edition, the author presents and explicates topics in a way that demonstrates the highly unified structure of the finite element method. The presentation integrates continuum mechanics and relevant mathematics with persistent reliance on variational and incremental-variational foundations. The author exploits matrix-vector formalisms and Kronecker product algebra to provide transparent and consistent notation throughout the text. Nearly twice as long as the first edition, this second edition features: § Greater integration and balance between introductory and advanced material § Increased number of fully solved examples § Selected developments in numerical methods, detailing accelerating computations in eigenstructure extraction, time integration, and stiffness matrix triangularization § More extensive coverage of the arc length method for nonlinear problems § Expanded and enhanced treatment of rotating bodies and buckling Provides Sophisticated Understanding of Capabilities and Limitations This new edition of a popular text includes significant illustrative examples and applications, modeling strategies, and explores a range of computational issues. Written by a professor with years of practical engineering and instructional experience, the book provides a strong foundation for those requiring a sophisticated understanding of the method’s capabilities and limitations.

Heat transfer analysis is a problem of major significance in a vast range of industrial applications. These extend over the fields of mechanical engineering, aeronautical engineering, chemical engineering and numerous applications in civil and electrical engineering. If one considers the heat conduction equation alone the number of practical problems amenable to solution is extensive. Expansion of the work to include features such as phase change, coupled heat and mass transfer, and thermal stress analysis provides the engineer with the capability to address a further series of key engineering problems. The complexity of practical problems is such that closed form solutions are not generally possible. The use of numerical techniques to solve such problems is therefore considered essential, and this book presents the use of the powerful finite element method in heat transfer analysis. Starting with the fundamental general heat conduction equation, the book moves on to consider the solution of linear steady state heat conduction problems, transient analyses and non-linear examples. Problems of melting and solidification are then considered at length followed by a chapter on convection. The application of heat and mass transfer to drying problems and the calculation of both thermal and shrinkage stresses conclude the book. Numerical examples are used to illustrate the basic concepts introduced. This book is the outcome of the teaching and research experience of the authors over a period of more than 20 years.

STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS WITH THE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD Linear Statics Volume 1 : The Basis and Solids Eugenio Oñate The two volumes of this book cover most of the theoretical and computational aspects of the linear static analysis of structures with the Finite Element Method (FEM). The content of the book is based on the lecture notes of a basic course on Structural Analysis with the FEM taught by the author at the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC) in Barcelona, Spain for the last 30 years. Volume1 presents the basis of the FEM for structural analysis and a detailed description of the finite element formulation for axially loaded bars, plane elasticity problems, axisymmetric solids and general three dimensional solids. Each chapter describes the background theory for each structural model considered, details of the finite element formulation and guidelines for the application to structural engineering problems. The book includes a chapter on miscellaneous topics such as treatment of inclined supports, elastic foundations, stress smoothing, error estimation and adaptive mesh refinement techniques, among others. The text concludes with a chapter on the mesh generation and visualization of FEM results. The book will be useful for students approaching the finite element analysis of structures for the first time, as well as for practising engineers interested in the details of the formulation and performance of the different finite elements for practical structural analysis.
