Description - Programming the Finite Element Method by I. M. Smith

Many students, engineers, scientists and researchers have
benefited from the practical, programming-oriented style of the
previous editions of Programming the Finite Element Method,
learning how to develop computer programs to solve specific
engineering problems using the finite element method.
This new fifth edition offers timely revisions that include
programs and subroutine libraries fully updated to Fortran 2003,
which are freely available online, and provides updated material on
advances in parallel computing, thermal stress analysis, plasticity
return algorithms, convection boundary conditions, and interfaces
to third party tools such as ParaView, METIS and ARPACK. As
in the previous editions, a wide variety of problem solving
capabilities are presented including structural analysis,
elasticity and plasticity, construction processes in geomechanics,
uncoupled and coupled steady and transient fluid flow and linear
and nonlinear solid dynamics.
Key features:
? Updated to take into account advances in parallel
computing as well as new material on thermal stress

? Programs use an updated version of Fortran 2003

? Includes exercises for students

? Accompanied by website hosting software
Programming the Finite
Element Method, Fifth Edition is an ideal textbook for
undergraduate and postgraduate students in civil and mechanical
engineering, applied mathematics and numerical analysis, and is
also a comprehensive reference for researchers and practitioners.
