About the Authors
  • The finite element method (FEM) is indispensable in modeling and simulation in various engineering and physical systems, including structural analysis, stress, strain, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, dynamics, eigenproblems, design optimization, sound propagation, electromagnetics, and coupled field problems. Incorporating theory, development of method, and the use of FEM in the commercial sector, this textbook integrates basic theory with real-life, design-oriented problems using ANSYS, the most commonly used computational software in the field. For students as well as practicing engineers and designers, each chapter is highly illustrated and presented in a step-by-step manner. Fundamental concepts are presented in detail with reference to easy to understand worked examples that clearly introduce the method before progressing to more advanced content. Included are step-by-step solutions for project type problems using modelling software, special chapters for modelling and the use of ANSYS and Workbench programs, and extensive sets of problems and projects round out each chapter.

    • Coverage of ANSYS Workbench software with an applications based focus
    • Covers conduction and heat transfer analysis
    • Covers design optimization
    • Initial chapters with minimal math development to help students grasp the concept.
    • Step-by-step solution for project type problems using Ansys/Workbench.
    • Special chapters for modelling hints and use of Ansys and Workbench programs.
    • Ample sets of examples in each chapter solved in a systematic way by introducing the ideas and assumptions then the solution.
