EBOOK - Finite Element Analysis (S. S. Bhavikatti)

The concept of Finite Element Analysis, finding properties of various elements and assembling stiffness equation is developed systematically by splitting the subject into various chapters. The method is made clear by solving many problems by hand calculations. The application of finite element method to plates, shells and nonlinear analysis is presented.

After listing some of the commercially available finite element analysis packages, the structure of a finite element program and the desired features of commercial packages are discussed. Introduction Basic Equations in Elasticity Matrix Displacement Formulation Element Shapes, Nodes, Nodal Unknowns and Coordinate Systems Shape Functions Strain Displacement Matrix Assembling Stiffness Equation.
