This book gives an introduction to the finite element method as a general computational method for solving partial differential equations approximately. Our approach is mathematical in nature with a strong focus on the underlying mathematical principles, such as approximation properties of piecewise polynomial spaces, and variational formulations of partial differential equations, but with a minimum level of advanced mathematical machinery from functional analysis and partial differential equations. In principle, the material should be accessible to students with only knowledge of calculus of several variables, basic partial differential equations, and linear algebra, as the necessary concepts from more advanced analysis are introduced when needed. Throughout the text we emphasize implementation of the involved algorithms, and have therefore mixed mathematical theory with concrete computer code using the numerical software MATLAB is and its PDE-Toolbox. We have also had the ambition to cover some of the most important applications of finite elements and the basic finite element methods developed for those applications, including diffusion and transport phenomena, solid and fluid mechanics, and also electromagnetics.‚Äč

Fundamental coverage, analytic mathematics, and up-to-date software applications are hard to find in a single text on the finite element method (FEM). Dimitrios Pavlou's Essentials of the Finite Element Method: For Structural and Mechanical Engineers makes the search easier by providing a comprehensive but concise text for those new to FEM, or just in need of a refresher on the essentials. Essentials of the Finite Element Method explains the basics of FEM, then relates these basics to a number of practical engineering applications. Specific topics covered include linear spring elements, bar elements, trusses, beams and frames, heat transfer, and structural dynamics. Throughout the text, readers are shown step-by-step detailed analyses for finite element equations development. The text also demonstrates how FEM is programmed, with examples in MATLAB, CALFEM, and ANSYS allowing readers to learn how to develop their own computer code. Suitable for everyone from first-time BSc/MSc students to practicing mechanical/structural engineers, Essentials of the Finite Element Method presents a complete reference text for the modern engineer. Provides complete and unified coverage of the fundamentals of finite element analysis Covers stiffness matrices for widely used elements in mechanical and civil engineering practice Offers detailed and integrated solutions of engineering examples and computer algorithms in ANSYS, CALFEM, and MATLAB

Over the last few decades, optimization techniques have been streamlined by the use of computers and artificial intelligence methods to analyze more variables (especially under non-linear, multivariable conditions) more quickly than ever before. This book covers all classical linear and nonlinear optimization techniques while focusing on the standard mathematical engine, MATLAB. As with the first edition, the author uses MATLAB in examples for running computer-based optimization problems. New coverage in this edition includes design optimization techniques such as Multidisciplinary Optimization, Explicit Solution for Boundary Value Problems, and Particle Swarm Optimization.

Practical Stress Analysis with Finite Elements is an ideal introductory text for newcomers to finite element analysis who wish to learn how to use FEA. Unlike many other books which claim to be at an introductory level, this book does not weigh the reader down with theory but rather provides the minimum amount of theory needed to understand how to practically perform an analysis using a finite element analysis software package. Newcomers to FEA generally want to learn how to apply FEA to their particular problem and consequently the emphasis of this book is on practical FE procedures. The information in this book is an invaluable guide and reference for both undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students and for practising engineers. * Emphasises practical finite element analysis with commercially available finite element software packages. * Presented in a generic format that is not specific to any particular finite element software but clearly shows the methodology required for successful FEA. * Focused entirely on structural stress analysis. * Offers specific advice on the type of element to use, the best material model to use, the type of analysis to use and which type of results to look for. * Provides specific, no nonsense advice on how to fix problems in the analysis. * Contains over 300 illustrations * Provides 9 detailed case studies which specifically show you how to perform various types of analyses. Are you tired of picking up a book that claims to be on "practical" finite element analysis only to find that it is full of the same old theory rehashed and contains no advice to help you plan your analysis? If so then this book is for you! The emphasis of this book is ondoing FEA, not writing a FE code. A method is provided to help you plan your analysis, a chapter is devoted to each choice you have to make when building your model giving you clear and specific advice. Finally nine case studies are provided which illustrate the points made in the main text and take you slowely through your first finite element analyses. The book is written in such a way that it is not specific to any particular FE software so it doesn't matter which FE software you use, this book can help you!

King's FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS WITH SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION prepares readers for a range of professional applications using an innovative approach that combines presentation theory with solid mechanics calculations to confirm configurations. The author demonstrates calculations in PTC Mathcad, providing an interactive what-if environment. Users then build SOLIDWORKS simulations. The book focuses on 3D analysis of real-world designs while emphasizing fundamentals. Readers master critical concepts such as singular stiffness matrices, digital resolution, and rigid-body motion. They build a small FEA software program that implements a 1D spring model. Investigations explore the effects of changing analyses as readers compare solutions, identify errors, make decisions, and examine alternative configurations and new models to become mature problem solvers and critical thinkers.
