Approaches computational engineering sciences from theperspective of engineering applications
Uniting theory with hands-on computer practice, this book givesreaders a firm appreciation of the error mechanisms and controlthat underlie discrete approximation implementations in theengineering sciences.
- Illustrative examples include heat conduction, structuralmechanics, mechanical vibrations, heat transfer with convection andradiation, fluid mechanics and heat and mass transport
- Takes a cross-discipline continuum mechanics viewpoint
- Includes Matlab toolbox and .m data files on a companionwebsite, immediately enabling hands-on computing in all covereddisciplines
- Website also features eight topical lectures from theauthor’s own academic courses
It provides a holistic view of the topic from covering thedifferent engineering problems that can be solved using finiteelement to how each particular method can be implemented on acomputer. Computational aspects of the method are provided on acompanion website facilitating engineering implementation in aneasy way.
