Finite Element Analysisby Barna Szabi
Synopses & Reviews
Covers the fundamentals of linear theory of finite elements, from both mathematical and physical points of view. Major focus is on error estimation and adaptive methods used to increase the reliability of results. Incorporates recent advances not covered by other books.
Book News Annotation:
Introduces engineers and engineering students to several new methods of finite element analysis, a decision-making process used in the aerospace industry. Focusing on developments during the 1980s, presents details of the p-version, the hp-version, and several original versions not published in book form before. Also reviews the mathematical and physical fundamentals of the linear theory of finite elements.
