The increase in the popularity and the number of potential applications of the finite strip method has created a demand for a definitive text/reference on the subject. Fulfilling this demand, The Finite Strip Method provides practicing engineers, researchers, and students with a comprehensive introduction and theoretical development, and a complete treatment of current practical applications of the method.
Written by experts who are arguably the world's leading authorities in the field, The Finite Strip Method covers both the classical strip and the newly developed spline strip and computed shape function strip. Applications in structural engineering, with particular focus on practical structures such as slab-beam bridges, box girder bridges, and tall buildings are discussed extensively. Applications in geotechnology are also covered, as are recently formulated applications in nonlinear analysis.
The Finite Strip Method is a unique book, supplying much-needed information by well-known and highly regarded authors.

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
