This book presents a practical understanding of the finite element method with a variety of engineering applications that will aid students, teachers, practicing engineers and researchers. It begins with an introduction to the mathematical modeling of engineering problems and approximate methods of analysis. It then introduces the different approaches in FEM such as direct approach, principle of virtual work, variational principle and method of weighted residual. Finally, the applications of FEM to realworld problems are presented in 1D, 2D and 3D for structural analysis, heat and mass transfer, geomechanical, fluid flow and other problems.
