From the Back Cover
Following the highly successful previous editions, this 4th edition contains programs and subroutine libraries fully updated to Fortran95, which are freely available on the Internet. A wide variety of problem solving capabilities are presented including structural analysis, elasticity and plasticity, construction processes in geomechanics, uncoupled and coupled steady and transient fluid flow and linear and nonlinear solid dynamics. A major new feature is the inclusion of parallelised programs, using MPI, which enable parallel processing of all types of finite element analyses. Performance evaluation shows that these programs make efficient use of parallel hardwares ranging from supercomputers to clusters of PCs.
Key features include:
- A clear outline of modular programming philosophy.
- More than 60 programs covering a wide range of problems in engineering and science.
- Results display using PostScript files.
- Exercises for students to solve.
- A simple but powerful parallelisation strategy.
These improvements all contribute to a more comprehensive book with a wide appeal. It will be of particular interest to students and practitioners in the application of finite element methods; to undergraduates and postgraduates in civil, mechanical and aeronautical engineering (stress analysis and fluid flow problems); to applied mathematicians and physicists (solution of partial differential equations); and to engineers in all of the above fields.

Just the routines I wanted to use were missing: lancz1 and lancz2 were omitted.
Probably because of copyright issues.
To be complete you need the (commercial) HSL library and it is not included.
The authors should really include a work-around, maybe write their own Lanczos algorithm...
Very annoying, when you finally have found the routines you want to use in your own software, you find out a routine is missing.
The downloadable sources and all the listings in the book suggest completeness... but no...
