Concepts and Applications of Finite Element Analysis – Robert Cook – 4th Edition

This is an accessible introduction to finite element analysis. The exposition moves gradually from simplke to more advanced theory, with the goal of making competent applications based on sold understanding. In addition to theory, considerable attention is given to practical matters: modeling for finite element analysis, checking computed results for errors, and revising an analysis as needed.

Basic theory is clearly explained. Includes over 500 analytical . mechanics is emphasized. Dynamics, nonlinearity, and heat transfer are treated. Includes examples with critiques.
