  • All Carl Ross’s previous books are very clear and well written. This thoroughly interesting text is no exception. The worked examples and practice problems are particularly useful. I will continue to recommend Professor Ross’s books to my students. For anyone requiring an introduction to finite element analysis, this text is excellent., Journal of Strain Analysis
    Very readable, clear and easy to follow. It should be especially useful to those new to the finite element method., Chartered Mechanical Engineer


  • Introduction to matrix algebra; The matrix displacement method; Finite element method; Vibration of structures; Non-linear structural mechanics; Modal method of analysis; References and answers to further problems.
