The Finite Element Method for Solid and Structural Mechanics is the key text and reference for engineers, researchers and senior students dealing with the analysis and modeling of structures, from large civil engineering projects such as dams to aircraft structures and small engineered components.
This edition brings a thorough update and rearrangement of the book’s content, including new chapters on:
Material constitution using representative volume elements
Differential geometry and calculus on manifolds
Background mathematics and linear shell theory
Focusing on the core knowledge, mathematical and analytical tools needed for successful structural analysis and modeling, The Finite Element Method for Solid and Structural Mechanics is the authoritative resource of choice for graduate level students, researchers and professional engineers.
A proven keystone reference in the library of any engineer needing to apply the finite element method to solid mechanics and structural design
Founded by an influential pioneer in the field and updated in this seventh edition by an author team incorporating academic authority and industrial simulation experience
Features new chapters on topics including material constitution using representative volume elements, as well as consolidated and expanded sections on rod and shell models
