The Finite Element Method in Engineering is the only book to provide a broad overview of the underlying principles of finite element analysis and where it fits into the larger context of other mathematically based engineering analytical tools. This is an updated and improved version of a finite element text long noted for its practical applications approach, its readability, and ease of use. Students will find in this textbook a thorough grounding of the mathematical principles underlying the popular, analytical methods for setting up a finite element solution based on mathematical equations.
The book provides a host of real-world applications of finite element analysis, from structural design to problems in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. It has added new sections on the assemblage of element equations, as well as an important new comparison between finite element analysis and other analytical methods showing advantages and disadvantages of each.
This book will appeal to students in mechanical, structural, electrical, environmental and biomedical engineering.

It is vital that the engineer or engineering student fully understands the theory and knowledge that underpins the finite element method before it is possible to utilize it in practice. Professor Rao, who has many years of teaching experience at one of the country's leading centers of technical excellence, explains the topics from first principles, making use of numerous illustrations and examples and breaking the subject into easily absorbed segments which will guide the reader through the material in stages.
