The finite element method (FEM) is indispensable in modeling and simulation in various engineering and physical systems, including structural analysis, stress, strain, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, dynamics, eigenproblems, design optimization, sound propagation, electromagnetics, and coupled field problems. This textbook integrates basic theory with real-life, design-oriented problems using ANSYS, the most commonly used computational software in the field. For students as well as practicing engineers and designers, each chapter is highly illustrated and presented in a step-by-step manner. Fundamental concepts are presented in detail with reference to easy to understand worked examples that clearly introduce the method before progressing to more advanced content. Included are step-by-step solutions for project type problems using modelling software, special chapters for modelling and the use of ANSYS and Workbench programs, and extensive sets of problems and projects round out each chapter.Read more

'In this text book Dr Gadallah provides very comprehensive coverage for the basics of Finite Element Method which makes the book an ideal reference for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to grasp the roots FEA. With the included software analysis, this text book is one of the best books I have gone through.' Gaffar Gailani, City University of New YorkSee more reviews
'This book enhances understanding of finite element theory with highlights of basic FEM concepts and practical projects solved with ANSYS and Workbench, the major FE commercial programs. It integrates the basic theory with many real-life, design oriented problems. It is an ideal textbook for undergraduate and graduate students and an excellent reference book for practicing engineers.' Junling (Joyce) Hu, University of Bridgeport
