Editorial Reviews


"This is the most beautiful scientific book that I have ever seen. (I am excluding popular science books from this statement; this book matches some of them in its beauty.) The authors, editors and publishers should be congratulated for giving so much attention not just to the content but also to the way the book looks. It is extremely inviting to read." (Iacm Expressions, 1 October 2010)

From the Back Cover

“The authors are the originators of isogeometric analysis, are excellent scientists and good educators. It is very original. There is no other book on this topic.” --René de Borst, Eindhoven University of Technology

Written by leading experts in the field and featuring fully integrated colour throughout, Isogeometric Analysis provides a groundbreaking solution for the integration of CAD and FEA technologies. Tom Hughes and his researchers, Austin Cottrell and Yuri Bazilevs, present their pioneering isogeometric approach, which aims to integrate the two techniques of CAD and FEA using precise NURBS geometry in the FEA application. This technology offers the potential to revolutionise automobile, ship and airplane design and analysis by allowing models to be designed, tested and adjusted in one integrative stage.

Providing a systematic approach to the topic, the authors begin with a tutorial introducing the foundations of Isogeometric Analysis, before advancing to a comprehensive coverage of the most recent developments in the technique. The authors offer a clear explanation as to how to add isogeometric capabilities to existing finite element computer programs, demonstrating how to implement and use the technology. Detailed programming examples and datasets are included to impart a thorough knowledge and understanding of the material.

  • Provides examples of different applications, showing the reader how to implement isogeometric models
  • Addresses readers on both sides of the CAD/FEA divide
  • Describes Non-Uniform Rational B-Splines (NURBS) basis functions
