Problems are somewhat strenuous but you can find a solutions manual online.
I would complement this with Ted Belytschko's introductory text and something well regarded in computational plasticity, maybe Belytschko's blue book or de Souza Netto's book. Or better yet all of them.
This book is very good, but be aware that this book is aimed at graduate physical-science/engineering students. This means that you know how to solve basic second order differential equations and understand how to perform path integrals for example.
This book is aimed at people who would like to be able to write their own FEM solver. If you are looking to gain some backgrounding in how to construct finite element models using a program to solve problems, this book is probably much more than you need. You might want to try Schaum's Outline of Finite Element Analysis if this is your objective.
DLearn is available from the [...] or by typing
"Dlearn program FEA"
into google and following the link.
All of that being said - this book has a strong following and one will find it on many bookshelves. An FEM expert may find this text to be a useful reference or 'brush up' guide. Here is a list of potentially better texts: http://scicomp.stackexchange.com/questions/1445/modern-resources-for-learning-fem/1446#1446
Instead buy the book: Finite element concepts from Dr. David Burnett, Much better than any of the books out there.
Follow it up with Finite Elements by Ottosen and Peterrsson, and finally
the book Finite Element Programming by Smith and Griffiths.
These three are really good and contain software (the last one)
Good for stablishing routines and procedures if you are willing to create your own brand new program. But also good if you are willing to use the routine that the authors wrote. You can find them at: [...]
Have a good time reading and working with Finite Elements as I am doing.
