Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Explore a Unified Treatment of the Finite Element Method

The finite element method has matured to the point that it can accurately and reliably be used, by a careful analyst, for an amazingly wide range of applications. With expanded coverage and an increase in fully solved examples, the second edition of Finite Element Analysis: Thermomechanics of Solids presents a unified treatment of the finite element method in theremomechanics, from the basics to advanced concepts.

An Integrated Presentation of Critical Technology

As in the first edition, the author presents and explicates topics in a way that demonstrates the highly unified structure of the finite element method. The presentation integrates continuum mechanics and relevant mathematics with persistent reliance on variational and incremental-variational foundations. The author exploits matrix-vector formalisms and Kronecker product algebra to provide transparent and consistent notation throughout the text.

Nearly twice as long as the first edition, this second edition features:

Greater integration and balance between introductory and advanced material

Increased number of fully solved examples

Selected developments in numerical methods, detailing accelerating computations in eigenstructure extraction, time integration, and stiffness matrix triangularization

More extensive coverage of the arc length method for nonlinear problems

Expanded and enhanced treatment of rotating bodies and buckling

Provides Sophisticated Understanding of Capabilities and Limitations

This new edition of a popular text includes significant illustrative examples and applications, modeling strategies, and explores a range of computational issues. Written by a professor with years of practical engineering and instructional experience, the book provides a strong foundation for those requiring a sophisticated understanding of the method 's capabilities and limitations.

Book News Annotation:

Nicholson (engineering and mathematics, U. of Central Florida, Orlando) presents a textbook for a second course on finite element analysis that can also be used as a reference by engineers who have background equivalent to a first course at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. He covers basic principles, material models, and contact models; computational, numerical, and software design aspects; and modeling principles and strategies. Without mentioning a date for the first edition, he explains that the second is 170% as long and focuses more on integrating introductory and advanced levels.

Synopsis:

Reorganized and updated to accommodate both the beginning and more advanced study of Finite Element Analysis, the new edition of this popular text contains much new information for both first and second level students. Written by a professor with years of practical engineering and instructional experience, the book is designed to provide a strong foundation for those requiring a sophisticated understanding of Finite Element Analysis' capabilities and limitations. It is also written for those preparing to enter careers in computer-aided engineering. It includes significant illustrative examples and applications, modeling strategies, and considers a range of computational issues.
