This unique book is written so both undergraduate and graduate students can easily comprehend the content without the usual prerequisites, such as structural analysis. The book is written primarily as a basic learning tool for students, like you, in civil and mechanical engineering who are primarily interested in stress analysis and heat transfer. The text offers ideal preparation for utilizing the finite element method as a tool to solve practical physical problems. Review "It is extremely well presented for an introductory text�The author does an excellent job of getting to the underlying issues without confusing the reader with overwrought detail�The examples were very interesting and actually included advanced topics that many students would not be able to address based upon the presentation in other texts...Interesting examples that are simply explained that present complex topics." "The presentation with regard to the example problems is the best I have seen in any textbook during 40+ years I have been teaching the finite element method�The textbook must be readable and at the appropriate level of sophistication for the students who will be using it. I find that this text does an excellent job of meeting both of these criteria." About the Author Daryl L. Logan is Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
