Présentation de l'éditeur
This book explores numerical implementation of Finite Element Analysis using MATLAB. Stressing interactive use of MATLAB, it provides examples and exercises from mechanical, civil and aerospace engineering as well as materials science. The text includes a short MATLAB tutorial. An extensive solutions manual offers detailed solutions to all problems in the book for classroom use. The second edition includes a new brick (solid) element with eight nodes and a one-dimensional fluid flow element. Also added is a review of applications of finite elements in fluid flow, heat transfer, structural dynamics and electro-magnetics. The accompanying CD-ROM presents more than fifty MATLAB functions.
