The Finite Element Method and Applications with ANSYS® provides the reader with theoretical and practical knowledge of the finite element method and with the skills required to analyze engineering problems with ANSYS®, a commercially available FEA program. This self-contained, introductory text minimizes the need for additional reference material, covering the fundamental topics in finite element methods as well as advanced topics concerning modeling and analysis with ANSYS®. These topics are introduced through extensive examples from various engineering disciplines, presented in a step-by-step fashion. The book focuses on the use of ANSYS® through both the Graphics User Interface (GUI) and the ANSYS® Parametric Design Language (APDL).

The text details more than 40 example problems, with solutions demonstrated in a step-by-step fashion, primarily through the use of GUI and, to a lesser extent, APDL.

Furthermore, it includes a CD-ROM with the "input" files for the example problems so that readers can regenerate them on their own computers, as well as the colored figures and screen shots.

Students, researchers, and practicing engineers will find this an essential reference for use in predicting and simulating the physical behavior of complex engineering systems using ANSYS®.
