The Finite Element Method in Mechanical Design
Charles E. Knight
Designed to give readers the ability to use finite element methods (FEM) as a design tool, this book balances mathematical theory and practical applications. It provides just enough theoretical material for students to work with FEM, without getting bogged down in theoretical details. Applications drawn from mechanical and aeronautical engineering give readers a "real world" view of how FEM is used to solve problems in industry, and how it can be used as a design tool. Includes a bound-in disk with problems in finite element analysis.
