Book Description

Introduction to Finite Engineering is ideal for senior undergraduate and first-year graduate students and also as a learning resource to practicing engineers.

style="margin: 0px;">

style="margin: 0px;">This book provides an integrated approach to finite element methodologies. The development of finite element theory is combined with examples and exercises involving engineering applications. The steps used in the development of the theory are implemented in complete, self-contained computer programs. While the strategy and philosophy of the previous editions has been retained, the¿Fourth Edition has been updated and improved to include new material on additional topics.

2Lack of solid mechanics killed it for me
By Aaron Thomas
I sat in Prof Chandrupatla class. This book was near impossible for me to follow due to his much different approach and terminology for solid mechanics. Students that had him or a similar mechanics class used the book effectively. I was totally lost without a solutions manual to translate what he was talking about into my experience.

5An Engineering book
By 33north
Needed for a finite element class. Arrived without any problems. Can't really comment on the book too much as I have yet to read through it. Seems promising from the semi-thorough skim through the pages.

2bad book good problems
By Brian
This book is pretty bad. Mainly the explanations are not very clear. The subject is easy but the book does a horrible job. I gave it 2 stars because it has good practice problems.
