Finite Element Analysis by S. M. Musa, A. V. Kulkarni and V. K. Havanur.

PREFACE Today, the finite element method (FEM) has become a common tool for solving engineering problems in industries for the obvious reasons of its versatility and affordability. To expose an undergraduate student in engineering to this powerful method, most of the universities have included this subject in the undergraduate curriculum. This book contains materials applied to mechanical engineering, civil engineering, electrical engineering, and physics. It is written primarily for students and educators as a simple introduction to the practice of FEM analysis in engineering and physics. This book contains many 1D and 2D problems solved by the analytical method, by FEM using hand calculations, and by using ANSYS 11 academic teaching software and COMSOL. Results of all the methods have been compared. This book compromises 10 chapters and 3 appendices.

More details about the contents:
Chapter 1: contains mathematical preliminaries needed for understanding the chapters of the book. 
Chapter 2: provides a brief introduction to FEA, a theoretical background, and its applications.
Chapter 3: contains the linear static analysis of bars of a constant crosssection, tapered cross-section, and stepped bar. In each section, a different variety of exercise problems is given. 
Chapter 4: contains the linear static analysis of trusses. Trusses problems are also selected in such a way that each problem has different boundary conditions to apply.
Chapter 5: provides the linear static analysis of simply supported and cantilever beams. In Chapters 3 to 5, all the problems are considered as one dimensional in nature. Indeed, stress analysis of a rectangular plate with a circular hole is covered in Chapter 6.
In  this chapter, emphasis is given on the concept of exploiting symmetric geometry and symmetric loading conditions. Also, stress and deformation plots are given.
Chapter 7: introduces the thermal analysis of cylinders and plates. Here both one dimensional and two dimensional problems are considered. 
Chapter 8: contains the problems of potential flow distribution over a cylinder and over an airfoil. 
Chapter 9: provides the dynamic analysis (modal and transient analysis) of bars and beams.
Chapter 10: provides the engineering electromagnetics analysis. The chapter gives an overview of electromagnetics theory and provides the finite element method analysis toward the electromagnetics, some models are demonstrated using the COMSOL multiphysics application and also ANSYS. The appendices are located on the companion disc in the back of the book. Appendix A contains the introduction to Classic ANSYS and ANSYS Workbench. Appendix B contains an overview of computational MATLAB.
