The Finite Element Method in Structural and Continuum Mechanics – O. C. Zienkiewicz – 1ra Edición


The enginner of the present day is faced with solving structural and other problems of growing complexity. Classical mathematics, despite its everincreasing sophistication, is capable of solving only severely idealized situations while placing at the same time a heavy burden on his skilled time, which could more usefully be employed in the process of design.

Fortunately, the rapid development of digital computers, with a progressively grater capacity and a decreasing cost of performing arithmetical operations, has come to his recue, allowing the use of relatively simple numerical formulations and revolutionizing his approach to the process of analysis.
