Finite Element Method: Physics and Solution Methods aims to provide the reader a sound understanding of the physical systems and solution methods to enable effective use of the finite element method. This book focuses on one- and two-dimensional elasticity and heat transfer problems with detailed derivations of the governing equations. The connections between the classical variational techniques and the finite element method are carefully explained. Following the chapter addressing the classical variational methods, the finite element method is developed as a natural outcome of these methods where the governing partial differential equation is defined over a subsegment (element) of the solution domain. As well as being a guide to thorough and effective use of the finite element method, this book also functions as a reference on theory of elasticity, heat transfer, and mechanics of beams.

  • Covers the detailed physics governing the physical systems and the computational methods that provide engineering solutions in one place, encouraging the reader to conduct fully informed finite element analysis
  • Addresses the methodology for modeling heat transfer, elasticity, and structural mechanics problems
  • Extensive worked examples are provided to help the reader to understand how to apply these methods in practice

Notă biografică

Sinan Müftü is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Northeastern University, Boston, USA. His research is in the general area of applied mechanics with applications in tribology and bioengineering, including mechanics of axially translating materials for roll-2-roll manufacturing systems, mechanics of high velocity particle impacts for cold spray additive manufacturing, and structure-function relationships in biological systems. He has taught the finite element method to undergraduate and graduate students in his institution since 2004 and developed customized programs for numerical analysis throughout his career. This book comes out of his experience and observations in teaching and conducting research in applied numerical analysis. Dr. Müftü is an elected fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers for his contributions to mechanics of axially translating media.
