This book has been a core finite element reference for me for 16 years.
This is straight-forward for any undergraduate with basic math to understand, but is just as good a read for the advanced reader new to the subject.
The book does contain all the information you need to understand the finite element method.
This is the only book I consider a good introduction to Finite Elements. I found all the others have one or more severe shortcomings that leave out essential material. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Snapple
If you are a beginner, please avoid buying this book. This book is okay only for the 2 first chapters, and it becomes tougher and can not understandable in the next following... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Tan Trinh
I think this book is cheap compared with its quality, I like it. ne ne de, I hope more book is as cheap as this one, especially in the U.S.Published 18 months ago by Guohua Zhou
this is good book for who is interested in FEM as a mechanical eng. Only drawback is no more examples, but when u compared price and quality, it worths five stars.Published 19 months ago by turk

I bought this book to begin understanding of finite elements theory. the book is good but sure not for starters. Read morePublished on July 26, 2008 by Negrolo
I am an international student majored in geology and geophysics. FEM is quite important for me to build a computational model to caculate statical and dynamical problems. Read morePublished on May 30, 2008 by Zhengyu Cai
This book has been a core finite element reference for me for 16 years. The mathematics are actually somewhat mild compared to most of today's finite element literature and many... Read morePublished on May 29, 2008 by Old Engineer
The text is obviously considered a benchmark for FEA. The date of the first edition causes me to guess that it was among the first serious texts in the subject. Read morePublished on May 1, 2008 by LittleSystemGuy
