From a purely techical point of view, the book really excels in its coverage of higher-order and special-purpose beam elements. These include nonuniform and curved elements, as well as special elements designed to address buckling and large deflection problems. The author skillfully uses several examples to quantify and compare these different elements with regard to accuracy and efficiency. This information is both interesting and useful. Finally, detailed mass-matrix formulations are provided that enable accurate solutions to free-vibration and other transient problems.
Other element types and formulations are also presented in some detail. These include membrane, plate, tetrahedral, hexahedral and axisymmetric solid, and finally several isoparametric variants. The book is then rounded out nicely with four computer programs:
1) Static analysis of plane truss and plane frame structures.
2) Free-vibration analysis of plane truss and plane frame structures.
3) Static analysis using six-degree-of-freedom triangular plane stress and plane strain finite elements.
4) Static analysis using sixteen-degree-of-freedom rectangular plate finite elements in bending.Read more ›
