Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Comprehensive -- this text explores the full range of finite element methods used in engineering practice for actual applications in computer-aided design. It provides not only an introduction to finite element methods and the commonality in the various techniques, but explores state-of-the-art methods as well -- with a focus on what are deemed to become "classical techniques" -- procedures that will be standard and authoritative for finite element analysis for years to come. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

BASIC APPROACH: Comprehensive — this text explores the full range of finite element methods used in engineering practice for actual applications in computer-aided design. It provides not only an introduction to finite element methods and the commonality in the various techniques, but explores state-of-the-art methods as well — with a focus on what are deemed to become "classical techniques" — procedures that will be standard and authoritative for finite element analysis for years to come.

FEATURES:

  • presents in sufficient depth and breadth elementary concepts AND advanced techniques in statics, dynamics, solids, fluids, linear and nonlinear analysis.
  • emphasizes both the physical and mathematical characteristics of procedures.
  • presents some important mathematical conditions on finite element procedures.
  • contains an abundance of worked-out examples and various complete program listings.
  • includes many exercises/projects that often require the use of a computer program.
  • --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Bathe's approach in writing this book makes it a distinguishing one from the "sea" of finite element text books. I personally owns 14 books on finite element method, this book and the other two are the only three I keep on my bookshelf, the rest are really quite garbage and packed up in paper boxes.

Format: Hardcover
The book is keystone for those involved in FEA. It covers all the aspects of Finite Element formulation of physical problems, thought in a more coincise way with respect to , say, Zienkiewicz work and in a less prosaic way. As with many other FE books, the level of mathematics involved in the book is quite high, especially if one considers the non linear finite element formulation for continuum mechanics. Even though the book is mainly intended for structural engineers, it covers fluid dynamics and heat transfer topics. The section I mostly used was the one regarding solution methods for FEM problems: here, Dr Bathe makes a really nice job (about 150 pages). There's a code at the end of the book, it's a FORTRAN 77 one, but one can translate it into a more modern language (I guess we all should get the rid of FORTRAN 77....).

Exercises on non linear FEM tend to be hard, but if you can get the solution book it should't represent a problem.

Two more things: even if the book, as aforementioned, mainly focuses on structural mechanics, there's a common background in FEM problem formulation regardless the particular subject it is intended for.

Second: the book is a very good one, but in my opinion if one intends to study only the basics of FEM, Reddy's book is more suitable for the purpouse. On the other hand, if one intends to pursue a higher level of FEM understanding, this book is a must. This book should be on the shelf of every serious FEM analyst. What's more...I guess Dr. Klaus Jurgen Bathe has to be a very nice person! :-)

Format: Hardcover
A thorough and comprehensive finite element text that not only covers the finite element theory for structures, CFD, and heat transfer but is also directed towards practical applications. A must for anyone interested in the finite element method, researcher or practicing engineer. This is the only text I have encountered which explains theoretical issues in a manner understandable to an engineer.

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent text for students and practioners alike. The presentation is brief and to the point and focuses only on algorithms and techniques that have been proven to work. The problems are excellent and can only be solved if one understands the essence of the techniques presented. There are many textbooks on finite elements but none so thought provoking as this one. Definitely a must read!

Prof.Bathe has written this book in a very natural manner. He unified almost all problems by the perspicuous style. Furthermore, several clear examples illustrate you more understanding what his purposes are. However it is supposed that you have some background of FE before starting this one. This is one of the books I love most.

Extremely hard to read book. It jumps all over the place and refers to later material in the book with the assumption that the reader already knows it. Spends an inordinate amount of time going into excruciating detail on some things that don't really matter and then totally skips others that do, leaving you utterly confused. The way it explains concepts is also very complicated, as if the author made a conscious effort to use the most esoteric and convoluted language possible. It's not horrible, but it's a lot of work to understand. Can't really compare it to other FE books as this is the only one I've read.

It's hard to not get wasted here trying to find the proper path through these bloated chapters. So pretty useless to me for self study.
Also does not explain the main concepts well or spend enough effort on doing that.
