Book Description:
The Finite Element Method: A Practical Course by G.R. Liu
and S.S. Quek
 has become an indispensable technology
for the modelling and simulation of engineering systems.
Written for engineers and students alike, the aim of the book
is to provide the necessary theories and techniques of the
FEM for readers to be able to use a commercial FEM package to
solve primarily linear problems in mechanical and civil
engineering with the main focus on structural mechanics and
heat transfer.
Fundamental theories are introduced in a straightforward way,
and state-of-the-art techniques for designing and analyzing
engineering systems, including micro
structural systems are explained in detail. Case studies
are used to demonstrate these theories, methods, techniques
and practical applications, and numerous diagrams and tables
are used throughout.
The case studies and examples use the commercial software
package ABACUS, but the techniques explained are equally
applicable for readers using other applications including
