The purpose of this book “A textbook of Finite Element Method” is to provide a simple, basic approach to the finite element method that can be understood by both undergraduate and postgraduate students in mechanical and civil engineering whose main interest is to solve the physical problem using finite element method. This book proceeds from basic to advanced topics that discuss the basics of the finite element method in a simple and systematic way. However, the concepts are presented in sufficiently general form so that the book serves as valuable learning for students.
- Step by step in the finite element method described with examples of the bar, beam, truss, and CST element.
- Clear and concise presentation of the concept.
- Large number of worked-out examples.
