|1. “Introduction to Finite Elements in Engineering” by T.R. Chandrupatla and A.D. Belegundu
Book Review: This is a very suitable textbook for graduate and undergraduate students and also to the practicing engineers in the field of finite elements in engineering. The book covers all the concepts related to finite element methodologies. The book also contains numerous examples and exercises that involve engineering applications. The book explains concepts in the form of self contained computer programs. The book has been revised and updates thereby containing many additional topics.
|2. “Introduction to the Finite Element Method” by J.N. Reddy
Book Review: This book very nicely explains the mathematics underlying the concepts of finite element method and also provides a generic approach to the engineering application areas. The book contains numerous examples and homework problems that cover most of the engineering areas thereby making the book suitable for engineering majors. The book also has solutions to end-of-chapter problems and also contains new chapters on FEM1D, FEM2D computer programs and many more.
|3. “Finite Element Analysis: Theory and Programming” by C.S. Krishnamoorthy
Book Review: This book provides in depth description of theory along with many computer programs that is very easily understandable by the students and engineers for stress analysis. The book also develops the finite element formulations with the help of easy to follow derivations required for the analysis of plane stress and strain, axisymmetric solid, plate bending, three dimensional solid and shell programs. The book explains concepts in the form of self contained computer programs. The book has been revised and updates thereby containing many additional topics.
