An Introductory Guide to Finite Element Analysis is written specifically for engineers and scientists who want to understand the fundamental theory of finite element (FE) analysis and to learn how to analyse practical problems using FE software. Based on lecture notes compiled by the author whilst running successful continuing professional development courses on finite element methods over the past 12 years, this excellent book provides answers to the fundamental questions a newcomer to FEA, or a busy practising engineer, might want to ask without using unnecessarily complex mathematical explanations.

Introduction and background

Structural analysis using pinjointed elements

Continuum elements (twodimensional, axisymmetric, three–dimensional

Energy and variational approaches

Higher order quadratic elements

Beam, plate, and shell elements

Practical guidelines for FE applications

Introduction to nonlinear FE analysis

Thermal problems

Examples of FE applications.

This book provides the theoretical background to understanding linear finite element analysis, presents a number of examples to illustrate how practical problems can be analysed using FE software, and provides a firm foundation for readers interested in further, more advanced, non–linear applications.
