Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering by Tirupathi R. Chandrupatla

Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering by Tirupathi R. Chandrupatla

The first edition of this book appeared over 10 years ago and the second edition followed a few years later. We received positive feedback from professors who taught from the book and from students and practicing engineers who used the book. We also benefited from the feedback received from the students in our courses for the past 20 years. We have incorporated several suggestions in this edition. The underlying philosophy of the book is to provide a clear presentation of theory, modeling, and implementation into computer programs. The pedagogy of earlier editions has been retained in this edition.
New material has been introduced in several chapters. Worked examples and exercise problems have been added to supplement the learning process. Exercise problems stress both fundamental understanding and practical considerations. Theory and computer programs have been added to cover acoustics, axisymmetric quadrilateral elements, conjugate gradient approach, and eigenvalue evaluation. Three additional programs have now been introduced in this edition. All the programs have been developed to work in the Windows environment. The programs have a common structure that should enable the users to follow the development easily. The programs have been provided in Visual Basic, Microsoft Excel/Visual Basic, MATLAB, together with those provided earlier in QBASIC, FORTRAN and C. The Solutions Manual has also been updated.
