Finite element analysis : theory and application with ANSYS

The fourth edition, consisting of 15 chapters, includes a number of new additions and changes that were incorporated in response to ANSYS revisions and suggestions and requests made by professors, students, and professionals using the third edition of the book. The major changes include:
1. Explanation of the changes that were made in the ANSYS's newest release
(Chapters 3 and 8)
2. Explanation of new element type capabilities (Chapters 3,4,6,8 through
13, and 15)
3. A new comprehensive example problem that demonstrates the use of
BEAM188 element in modeling beam and frame problems (Chapter 4)
4. Modification of twenty example problems to incorporate new ANSYS element
types (Chapters 3,4,6,8 through 13, and 15)
5. Eight new comprehensive example problems that show in great detail how
to use Excel to solve different types of finite element problems (Chapters 2
through 6 and 9 through 12)
6. More detail on theory and expanded derivations
7. Explanation of new MATLAB revisions in Appendix F
There are many good textbooks already in existence that cover the theory of finite element methods for advanced students. However, none of these books incorporate ANSYS as an integral part of their materials to introduce finite element modeling to undergraduate students and newcomers. In recent years, the use of finite element analysis (FEA) as a design tool has grown rapidly. Easy-to-use, comprehensive pack¬ages such as ANSYS, a general-purpose finite element computer program, have become common tools in the hands of design engineers. Unfortunately, many engi¬neers who lack the proper training or understanding of the underlying concepts have been using these tools. This introductory book is written to assist engineering students and practicing engineers new to the field of finite element modeling to gain a clear understanding of the basic concepts. The text offers insight into the theoretical aspects of FEA and also covers some practical aspects of modeling. Great care has been exer¬cised to avoid overwhelming students with theory, yet enough theoretical background is offered to allow individuals to use ANSYS intelligently and effectively.
