Statics | Dynamics | Nonlinearity | Modelling
The book covers important questions about the finite element method. How does the method work? What are the characteristics of a finite element approximation? How can pitfalls in finite element modeling be avoided and how are the results properly interpreted? Finite element theory is presented “as simply as possible” and illustrated with many examples. The aim is to provide the basic theoretical knowledge in an comprehensible way, which is required for the professional application of complex finite element software in practice.
