#### A First Course in Finite Elements

Wiley 2007; US$ 62.50 US$ 54.99Developed from the authors, combined total of 50 years undergraduate and graduate teaching experience, this book presents the finite element method formulated as a general-purpose numerical procedure for solving engineering problems governed by partial differential equations. Focusing on the formulation and application of the finite element... more...

#### Numerical solution of Variational Inequalities by Adaptive Finite Elements

Vieweg+Teubner Verlag 2009; US$ 63.80This work describes a general approach to a posteriori error estimation and adaptive mesh design for ?nite element models where the solution is subjected to inequality constraints. This is an extension to variational inequalities of the so-called Dual-Weighted-Residual method (DWR method) which is based on a variational formulation of the problem and... more...

#### Large Strain Finite Element Method

Large Strain Finite Element Method: A Practical Course , takes an introductory approach to the subject of large strains and large displacements in finite elements and starts from the basic concepts of finite strain deformability, including finite... more...

#### Fundamentals of the Finite Element Method for Heat and Fluid Flow

Wiley 2004; US$ 73.00 US$ 63.27Heat transfer is the area of engineering science which describes the energy transport between material bodies due to a difference in temperature. The three different modes of heat transport are conduction, convection and radiation. In most problems, these three modes exist simultaneously. However, the significance of these modes depends on the problems... more...

#### Mesh Enhancement

World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 180.00 US$ 163.80This book focuses on mesh (grid) enhancement techniques — specifically, the use of selected elliptic methods for both structured and unstructured meshes associated with computational physics applications. Mesh enhancement is the process in which an existing mesh is modified to better meet the requirements of the physics application. more...

#### Multilevel Block Factorization Preconditioners

Springer New York 2008; US$ 123.14This monograph is the first to provide a comprehensive, self-contained and rigorous presentation of some of the most powerful preconditioning methods for solving finite element equations in a common block-matrix factorization framework. more...

#### The Essentials of Finite Element Modeling and Adaptive Refinement

Momentum Press 2012; US$ 99.00Finite Element Analysis is a very popular, computer-based tool that uses a complex system of points called nodes to make a grid called a "mesh. " The mesh contains the material and structural properties that define how the structure will react to certain loading conditions, allowing virtual testing and analysis of stresses or changes applied to the... more...

#### A Posteriori Error Estimation Techniques for Finite Element Methods

OUP Oxford 2013; US$ 129.99A posteriori error estimation techniques are fundamental to the efficient numerical solution of PDEs arising in physical and technical applications. This book gives a unified approach to these techniques and guides graduate students, researchers, and practitioners towards understanding, applying and developing self-adaptive discretization methods. more...

#### An Introduction to Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis

Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 139.99This book presents the theory and computer implementation of the finite element method as applied to nonlinear problems of heat transfer and similar field problems, fluid mechanics (flows of incompressible fluids), and solid mechanics (elasticity, beams and plates). Both geometric as well as material nonlinearities are considered, and static and transient... more...

#### Development and Application of the Finite Element Method based on MatLab

Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2010; US$ 123.14Providing a concise introduction to the Finite Element Method (FEM), this volume presents an overview of the leading method in computer–oriented mechanics. Readers will learn how to implement equations of continuum mechanics into FEM, as well as how to program their own models of materials. more...
