Finite Element Analysis with Error Estimators
An Introduction to the FEM and Adaptive Error Analysis for Engineering Students
- J. Akin, Professor of Mechanical Engineering, Rice University, Houston, TX
This key text is written for senior undergraduate and graduate engineering students. It delivers a complete introduction to finite element methods and to automatic adaptation (error estimation) that will enable students to understand and use FEA as a true engineering tool. It has been specifically developed to be accessible to non-mathematics students and provides the only complete text for FEA with error estimators for non-mathematicians. Error estimation is taught on nearly half of all FEM courses for engineers at senior undergraduate and postgraduate level; no other existing textbook for this market covers this topic.
Senior undergraduate and masters level courses in engineering, computational science, and some applied mathematics programs. Most aerospace, chemical, civil & mechanical engineering programs, & senior level electrical engineering courses
