This reviewer belongs to group 1, and can testify that the book cannot be intended for his group because it fails to define emphatically and unambiguously such crucial terms as: This may not matter for group 2 readers, for whom the text serves simply as a reminder of what they already know ; but it sadly saps the confidence of the newcomer.
For example, one of the few things which I know about the Galerkin method is ,that the weighting functions are chosen to be the same as the interpolation functions.
Yet, so far as I could see, this important piece of information is not stated explicitly until p. Perhaps the information could be deduced from that early seclion by an extremely percipient betweenthe-lines reader, but certainly not by me.
Not being for group 1, the book cannot logically suit group 3 either. What about group 2?
If the book is for them, this reviewer is of the opinion that they deserve a rather more extensive introduction to heat transfer than the two-and-a-half pages in Chapter 2 on conduction, and the two-thirds of a page in Chapter 6 on convection. Space for this could have been saved by condensing the introduction of the standard finite-element topics alluded to above, which does not, as has just been stated, satisfy the needs of the beginner.
There is a further deficiency: All that they are told by the present authors is: Several Fortran computer programs are given with example applications to serve the following purposes: - to enable the student to understand the computer implementation of the theory developed; - to solve specific problems; - to indicate procedure for the development of computer programs for solving any other problem in the same area.
The source codes of all the Fortran computer programs can be found at the Web site for the book, www. Note that the computer programs are intended for use by students in solving simple problems.
Although the programs have been tested, no warranty of any kind is implied as to their accuracy. After studying the material presented in the book, a reader will not only be able to understand the current literature of the finite element method but also be in a position to develop short computer programs for the solution of engineering problems.
The book is divided into 22 chapters and an appendix. Chapter 1 gives an introduction and overview of the finite element method.
The basic approach and the generality of the method are illustrated through simple examples. Chapters 2 through 7 describe the basic finite element procedure and the solution of the resulting equations.
The finite element discretization and modeling, including considerations in selecting the number and types of elements, is discussed in Chapter 2. The interpolation models in terms of Cartesian and natural coordinate systems are given in Chapter 3. Chapter 4 describes the higher order and isoparametric elements. The use of Lagrange and Hermite polynomials is also discussed in this chapter.
The derivation of element characteristic matrices and vectors using direct, variational, and weighted residual approaches is given in Chapter 5. The solutions of finite element equations arising in equilibrium, eigenvalue, and propagation transient or unsteady problems, along with their computer implementation, are briefly outlined in Chapter 7. Thanks so much Thank you Surya, interiors is one of the fast growing fields in India.
I find your website full of knowledgeable posts, well written and entertaining. Looking forward to learning more in the paid courses. Surya, thank you for such detailed information in the Ebook.
It really opened my eyes on the income potential in the USA for stress engineers, I had no idea. I spent a lot of time on the blog posts, very useful posts. I am definitely thinking about the FEM course. But previously i have worked on FEA. Will surely keep updated with your blogs.
