T.Y. Yang has designed this self-contained elementary book on finite element method in structural analysis for junior, senior, and graduate levels, and for the practicing engineer. The author examines fundamental derivations and physical interpretations of subjects in considerable detail with examples, figures, and problems.

Among its features, the book:

  • interprets the research in finite element method simply and clearly
  • offers a flexible and self-contained formal
  • deals with unique subjects in vibration, buckling, and large deflection
  • reviews 2D, 3D, and plate bending elements
  • provides programs and examples for a frame, a plane stress, and a plate bending element
  • gives comprehensive illustrations of isoparametric elements from derivations of quadrature formula to calculations of stiffness coefficients
