About this book

This book presents in one treatise – both – the basic mathematical

models of solid / structural mechanics and effective finite element

procedures for the solution of these models. The book can be

used for teaching, in a modern way, solid and structural mechanics,

finite element methods, and for self-study – from elementary to

quite advanced material.

 

In synthesizing classical mechanics with modern finite element

analysis, emphasis is given to the hierarchical nature of the

mathematical models of mechanics, from simple to complex, and

on choosing the simplest reliable and effective model for analysis.

The process of hierarchical modeling and finite element solution

is illustrated in examples that show the benefits reached when good

hierarchical modeling is performed.

 

To pursue an effective analysis is an art – the objective is to predict

the future. Performing in the art of analysis is very stimulating

and requires constant learning. This book has been written to provide

a fundamental basis for that learning process.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“In this well-written work, Bucalem … and Bathe (MIT) present an approach based on hierarchical modeling of problems in solids and structures. It involves mathematical modeling of a physical problem and developing a solution based on well-established finite element methods.  … Overall, an excellent presentation of hierarchical modeling of problems in solids and structures, useful for students in mechanical, civil, aerospace, and other engineering courses. Summing Up: Recommended. Engineering collections serving upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals/practitioners.” (R. Kolar, Choice, Vol. 49 (5), January, 2012)

“The aim of this original book is to provide a rational, structured and modern framework for the modeling and analysis of engineering structures by presenting in one treatise both the basic mathematical models of solid and structural mechanics and modern reliable finite element procedures for the solution of these models. … this book not only gives valuable information regarding the linear analysis of solids, but also demonstrates universal concepts of analysis that are generally applicable.” (P. Rochus, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 h)
