It is very difficult to write a book which covers the entire finite element field. ..The authors have made a splendid attempt at a very difficult task. The books remain a tremendous bargain...and are an invaluable guide to the entire field of finite elements. If you are serious about working on finite elements you cannot do without this book.
Mathematics Today, August 2001.
"...the publication of the first edition was an epoch making event...it is written by...the greatest theorist of the subject. If you are serious about finite elements, this is a book that you simply cannot afford to be without."
International Journal of Numerical Methods in Engineering.
"..the pre-eminent reference work on finite element analysis." Applied Mechanical Review
"...a very good book...presentation is first class...will be of great assistance to all engineers and scientists interested in the method...a very commendable piece of work." Journal of the British Society for Strain Measurement
Nobody who is serious about the Finite Element Method can afford to be without this introductory book by two of FEM's pioneers
