Approaches computational engineering sciences from the perspective of engineering applications

Uniting theory with hands-on computer practice, this book gives readers a firm appreciation of the error mechanisms and control that underlie discrete approximation implementations in the engineering sciences.

Key features:

  • Illustrative examples include heat conduction, structural mechanics, mechanical vibrations, heat transfer with convection and radiation, fluid mechanics and heat and mass transport
  • Takes a cross-discipline continuum mechanics viewpoint
  • Includes Matlab toolbox and .m data files on a companion website, immediately enabling hands-on computing in all covered disciplines
  • Website also features eight topical lectures from the author’s own academic courses

It provides a holistic view of the topic from covering the different engineering problems that can be solved using finite element to how each particular method can be implemented on a computer. Computational aspects of the method are provided on a companion website facilitating engineering implementation in an easy way.
