A First Course in Finite Element Method By Daryl L .Logan (5th Ed)

The purpose of this fifth edition is again to provide an introductory approach to the finite element method that can be understood by both undergraduate and graduate students without the usual prerequisites (such as structural analysis and upper level calculus) required by many available texts in this area. The book is written primarily as a basic learning tool for the undergraduate student in civil and mechanical engineering whose main interest is in stress analysis and heat transfer, although new material on electrical networks and electrostatics has been included in this edition that should be of interest to the electrical engineer as well. The concepts are presented simple form with numerous example problems logically placed throughout the book, so that the book serves as a valuable learning aid for students with other backgrounds, as well as for practicing engineers.
