A Finite Element Method Primer for Mechanical Design – Charles E. Knight – 1st Edition

Description

Finite Element Method is a powerful computer tool for evaluating the mechanical properties of a design, and this book is a companion to a conventional textbook. A Finite Element Method Primer for Mechanical was written to be a supplementary text for the junior mechanical design course in a traditional mechanical curriculum. The intent is to introduce the finite element method in the context of mechanical design.

Emphasis is on the practical aspects of proper modeling, checking, and interpretation of results. Theoretical aspects are introduced as they are needed to help understand the operation. The text covers truss, beam/frame, and two dimensional solid structures. This text is basically an excerpt from The Finite Element Method in Mechanical Design.

For the first course in Finite Element Methods taken by mechanical, civil, aerospace, and other majors at junior or senior level. Excellent applicaitons drawn from mechanical/aeronautical engineering. Provides enough theory for to work with Finite Element Analysis (FEM) without bogging down in details unrelated to practical

provides exactly the coverage of FEM needed in a free-standing supplementary book. Knights coverage of FEM relates directly to mechanical engineering, and is supported by mechanical examples and case studies.
