A Finite Element Method Primer for Mechanical Design – Charles E. Knight – 1st Edition

Finite Element Method is a powerful analysis tool for evaluating the properties of a design, and this is a companion to a conventional textbook. A Finite Element Method Primer for was written to be a supplementary text for the junior course in a traditional mechanical engineering curriculum. The intent is to introduce the finite element method in the context of .

Emphasis is on the practical aspects of proper modeling, checking, and interpretation of results. Theoretical aspects are introduced as they are needed to help understand the operation. The text covers truss, beam/frame, and two dimensional solid engineering structures. This text is basically an excerpt from The Finite Element Method in Mechanical Design.
