Now in its third edition, Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering provides an integrated approach to finite methodologies through the integration of exercises and examples involving engineering applications. The steps used in the development of the theory are implemented in complete, self-contained computer programs, while retaining the strategies and philosophies of previous editions. It serves as a primary textbook for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students as well as an invaluable learning resource for practicing engineers. Hallmark Features: Over 250 illustrations integrated throughout the text. Problem formulation and modeling emphasized in each chapter. Practical examples and problems. Pre- and post-processing concepts discussed in the last chapter. New to the Third Edition: Additional programs and source code on a companion CD Includes complete self-contained computer programs with source codes in Visual Basic, Excel-based Visual Basic, MATLAB, QUICKBASIC, FORTRAN, and C.Tirupathi R. Chandrupatla is the author of 'Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering (3rd Edition)', published 2002 under ISBN 9780130615916 and ISBN 0130615919.
