For courses in Finite Element Analysis.

Unique in approach and content, this text presents the theory of finite element analysis, explores its application as a design/modeling tool, and explains in detail how to use ANSYS intelligently and effectively.

**Features :**

- NEW--New chapters on matrix algebra, beams and frames, dynamic problems, and design and material selection.
- Helps students understand how a system of nodal equations are solved.
- NEW--New sections on axisymmetric elements and formulations, p-method and h-method, and unsteady heat transfer.
- NEW--Two new appendices--Covering properties of area shapes and properties of structural steel shapes.
- Helps students refresh their understanding of properties of area shapes, a review of first and second moments of area are provided in appendix C.
- NEW--Companion Website--Includes updates to ANSYS, additional homework problems and more.
- Offers additional information for instructors and students.
- NEW--Integration of ANSYS 6.1 (the latest version) throughout--Each chapter first discusses the relevant basic theory and then demonstrates it using simple problems with hand-calculations. Follows with examples that are solved using ANSYS.
- Helps students learn how to use ANSYS quickly and effectively. Shows students how to use ANSYS step by step to model a physical problem.
- Discussions of various sources of error that can contribute to wrong results--Devotes a section, at the end of each selected chapter, to verifying ANSYS results.
- Emphasizes for students how to find suitable ways to verify Finite Element Analysis (FEA) findings.
- Open-ended design problems.
- Exposes students to many design problems that could be solved with ANSYS.
- A brief review of fundamental principles in solid mechanics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics.
- Helps students keep these important concepts fresh in their minds.
- Mechanical and thermophysical properties of some common materials used in engineering--Covered in appendices.
- A list of objectives and a summary for each chapter.
- Gives students a preview of what they can expect to learn at the beginning of each chapter and a concise overview of the lessons learned at the end of each chapter.
