Introduction to Finite Element Analysis – Harold C. Martin, Graham F. Carey – 1st Edition


The finite element method (FEM) is a numerical method for solving problems of and mathematical physics. It is also referred to as finite element  (FEA). Typical problem areas of interest include structural analysisheat transferfluid flow, , and electromagnetic potential. The analytical solution of these problems generally require the solution to boundary value problems for partial differential equations.  This text stems from a period of research, teaching, and application of finite element analysis by the authors, and presents a cohesive treatment of both theory and technique.
