This is a textbook written for mechanical engineering students at
first-year graduate level. As such, it emphasizes the development
of finite element methods used in applied mechanics. The book
starts with fundamental formulations of heat conduction and linear
elasticity and derives the weak form (i.e. the principle of virtual
work in elasticity) from a boundary value problem that represents
the mechanical behaviour of solids and fluids. Finite element
approximations are then derived from this weak form. The book
contains many useful exercises and the author appropriately
provides the student with computer programs in both BASIC and
FORTRAN for solving them. Furthermore, a workbook is available with
additional computer listings, and also an accompanying disc that
contains the BASIC programs for use on IBM-PC microcomputers and
their compatibles. Thus the usefulness and versatility of this text
is enhanced by the student's ability to practise problem solving on
