  • Organized according to the various types of differential equations
  • Starts chapters with a standard problem statement, then moves to FEA modeling of the problem

  • Applies the model to physical problems, analyzes results, and stresses assessment factors

  • Uses MATLAB codes for the examples and exercises in each chapter

  • Covers problems from a wide range of engineering areas, and both solid and fluid mechanics


Finite Element Analysis for Engineers introduces FEA as a technique for solving differential equations, and for application to problems in Civil, Mechanical, Aerospace and Biomedical Engineering and Engineering Science & Mechanics. Intended primarily for senior and first-year graduate students, the text is mathematically rigorous, but in line with students' math courses. Organized around classes of differential equations, the text includes MATLAB code for selected examples and problems. Both solid mechanics and thermal/fluid problems are considered. Based on the first author's class-tested notes, the text builds a solid understanding of FEA concepts and modern engineering applications.
