Description

For courses in Finite Element Analysis, offered in departments of Mechanical or Civil and Environmental Engineering.

 

While many good textbooks cover the theory of finite element modeling, this is the only text available that incorporates ANSYS as an integral part of its content. Moaveni presents the theory of finite element analysis, explores its application as a design/modeling tool, and explains in detail how to use ANSYS intelligently and effectively.
