Practical Stress Analysis with Finite Elements is an ideal introductory text for newcomers to finite element analysis who wish to learn how to use FEA. Unlike many other books which claim to be at an introductory level, this book does not weigh the reader down with theory but rather provides the minimum amount of theory needed to understand how to practically perform an analysis using a finite element analysis software package. Newcomers to FEA generally want to learn how to apply FEA to their particular problem and consequently the emphasis of this book is on practical FE procedures. The information in this book is an invaluable guide and reference for both undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students and for practising engineers. * Emphasises practical finite element analysis with commercially available finite element software packages. * Presented in a generic format that is not specific to any particular finite element software but clearly shows the methodology required for successful FEA. * Focused entirely on structural stress analysis. * Offers specific advice on the type of element to use, the best material model to use, the type of analysis to use and which type of results to look for. * Provides specific, no nonsense advice on how to fix problems in the analysis. * Contains over 300 illustrations * Provides 9 detailed case studies which specifically show you how to perform various types of analyses. Are you tired of picking up a book that claims to be on "practical" finite element analysis only to find that it is full of the same old theory rehashed and contains no advice to help you plan your analysis? If so then this book is for you! The emphasis of this book is ondoing FEA, not writing a FE code. A method is provided to help you plan your analysis, a chapter is devoted to each choice you have to make when building your model giving you clear and specific advice. Finally nine case studies are provided which illustrate the points made in the main text and take you slowely through your first finite element analyses. The book is written in such a way that it is not specific to any particular FE software so it doesn't matter which FE software you use, this book can help you!

This new text, intended for the senior undergraduate finite element course in civil or mechanical engineering departments, gives students a solid, practical understanding of the principles of the finite element method within a variety of engineering applications. Hutton discusses basic theory of the finite element method while avoiding variational calculus, instead focusing upon the engineering mechanics and mathematical background that may be expected of senior engineering students. The text relies upon basic equilibrium principles, introduction of the principle of minimum potential energy, and the Galerkin finite element method, which readily allows application of finite element analysis to nonstructural problems. The text is software-independent, making it flexible enough for use in a wide variety of programs, and offers a good selection of homework problems and examples. A Book Website is also included, with PowerPoint images of key figures; complete problem solutions (password protected); the FEPC finite element program for student use; instructions on FEPC and its use with the text; and links to commercial FEA sites.

Expanded to include a broader range of problems than the bestselling first edition, Finite Element Method Using MATLAB: Second Edition presents finite element approximation concepts, formulation, and programming in a format that effectively streamlines the learning process. It is written from a general engineering and mathematical perspective rather than that of a solid/structural mechanics basis. What's new in the Second Edition? Each chapter in the Second Edition now includes an overview that outlines the contents and purpose of each chapter. The authors have also added a new chapter of special topics in applications, including cracks, semi-infinite and infinite domains, buckling, and thermal stress. They discuss three different linearization techniques to solve nonlinear differential equations. Also included are new sections on shell formulations and MATLAB programs. These enhancements increase the book's already significant value both as a self-study text and a reference for practicing engineers and scientists.

The finite element method has always been a mainstay for solving engineering problems numerically. The most recent developments in the field clearly indicate that its future lies in higher-order methods, particularly in higher-order hp-adaptive schemes. These techniques respond well to the increasing complexity of engineering simulations and satisfy the overall trend of simultaneous resolution of phenomena with multiple scales. Higher-Order Finite Element Methods provides an thorough survey of intrinsic techniques and the practical know-how needed to implement higher-order finite element schemes. It presents the basic priniciples of higher-order finite element methods and the technology of conforming discretizations based on hierarchic elements in spaces H^1, H(curl) and H(div). The final chapter provides an example of an efficient and robust strategy for automatic goal-oriented hp-adaptivity. Although it will still take some time for fully automatic hp-adaptive finite element methods to become standard engineering tools, their advantages are clear. In straightforward prose that avoids mathematical jargon whenever possible, this book paves the way for fully realizing the potential of these techniques and putting them at the disposal of practicing engineers.

Designing structures using composite materials poses unique challenges due especially to the need for concurrent design of both material and structure. Students are faced with two options: textbooks that teach the theory of advanced mechanics of composites, but lack computational examples of advanced analysis; and books on finite element analysis that may or may not demonstrate very limited applications to composites. But now there is third option that makes the other two obsolete: Ever J. Barbero's Finite Element Analysis of Composite Materials. By layering detailed theoretical and conceptual discussions with fully developed examples, this text supplies the missing link between theory and implementation. In-depth discussions cover all of the major aspects of advanced analysis, including three-dimensional effects, viscoelasticity, edge effects, elastic instability, damage, and delamination. More than 50 complete examples using mainly ANSYSTM, but also including some use of MATLAB®, demonstrate how to use the concepts to formulate and execute finite element analyses and how to interpret the results in engineering terms. Additionally, the source code for each example is available for download online. Cementing applied computational and analytical experience to a firm foundation of basic concepts and theory, Finite Element Analysis of Composite Materials offers a modern, practical, and versatile classroom tool for today's engineering classroom.
