Summary
"This book deals with the Finite Element Method for the analysis of elastic structures such as beams, plates, shells and solids. The modern approach of Unified Formulation (UF), as proposed by the lead author, deals with the consideration of one-dimensional (beams), two-dimensional (plates and shells) and three-dimensional (solids) elements. Applications are given for structures which are typically employed in civil, mechanical, and aerospace engineering fields. Additional topics include mixed order elements, extension to layered composite structures, and the analysis of multifield problems involving mechanical, electrical and thermal loadings." --
