This book is aimed at senior undergraduates, graduates and engineers. It fills the gap between the numerous textbooks on traditional Applied Mechanics and postgraduate books on Finite Element Methods.
- Fills the gap between the applied mechanics and finite element methods
- Discusses basic structural concepts and energy theorems, the discrete system, in-plane quadrilateral elements, field problems and mathematical modelling, among other topics
- Aimed at senior undergraduates, graduates and engineers
Senior year undergraduate students, graduate students, and engineers
