A Unified Approach to the Finite Element Method & Error Analysis Procedure
This book provides an in-depth background leading to better understanding of finite element results and techniques for improving accuracy of finite element methods.
Three different error analysis techniques are systematically developed from a common theoretical foundation: 1) modeling errors in individual elements; 2) discretization errors in the overall model; and 3) point-wise errors in the final stress or strain results.
Finite Element Modeling for Stress Analysis
Using an excellent combination of application and theory, the text thoroughly explains how elements behave, unveils the assumptions and restrictions of finite element implementations and stresses the need to assess the correctness of computer results.
The author presents a clear, realistic example early in the book then progressively provides the background to understand more challenging problems.
Finite Element Procedures
This text explores the full range of finite element methods used in engineering practice for actual applications in computer-aided design. It provides not only an introduction to finite element methods and the commonality in the various techniques, but explores state-of-the-art methods as well – with a focus on what are deemed to become “classical techniques” – procedures that will be standard and authoritative for finite element analysis for years to come.
Nonlinear Finite Elements for Continua and Structures
This book provides a comprehensive description of the major methodologies of nonlinear finite element analysis for solid mechanics, as applied to continua and structures. Treatment of the subject is integrated in such a way that the reader can gain an understanding of the fundamental methods, a feeling for the comparative usefulness of different approaches and an appreciation of the difficulties inherent in nonlinear analysis.
