Serves as a supplemental text for an undergraduate and a primary textbook for a graduate course, and as a reference for practicing engineers and researchers in computational mechanics. Dow (structural mechanics, U. of Colorado-Boulder) provides background material about finite element results and techniques that can improve their accuracy. From a common theoretical foundation, he develops three error analysis techniques: modeling errors in individual elements, discretization errors in the overall model, and point-wise errors in the final stress or strain results. -- Copyright Â© 1999 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR All rights reserved
