The Finite Element Method in Engineering – Singiresu S. Rao – 4th Edition


The Finite Element Method in is the only book to provide a broad overview of the underlying principles of finite element analysis and where it fits into the larger context of other mathematically based engineering analytical tools. This is an updated and improved version of a finite element text long noted for its practical approach, its readability, and ease of use. Students will find in this a thorough grounding of the mathematical principles underlying the popular, analytical for setting up a finite element solution based on mathematical equations.

The book provides a host of real-world applications of finite element analysis, from design to problems in and thermodynamics. It has added new sections on the assemblage of element equations, as well as an important new comparison between finite element analysis and other analytical methods showing advantages and disadvantages of each.

This book will appeal to students in , structural, electrical, environmental and .
