Book Description

The aim of this book is to provide professional engineers and students of engineering with a sound working knowledge of the finite element method for engineering analysis and engineering design. This readable text will serve as a guide both to the method, and to its implementation in PAFEC (Program for Automatic Finite Element Calculations) software.
