eloped from the authors, the combined total of 50 years undergraduate and graduate teaching experience, this book presents the finite element method formulated as a general–purpose numerical procedure for solving engineering problems governed by partial differential equations. In this blog post, you will be able to download free PDF e-book copy of A First Course in Finite Elements PDF.

Focusing on the formulation and application of the finite element method through the integration of finite element theory, code development, and software application, the book is both introductory and self–contained, as well as being a hands-on experience for any student.

A First Course in Finite Elements is the ideal practical introductory course for junior and senior undergraduate students from a variety of science and engineering disciplines.  The accompanying advanced topics at the end of each chapter also make it suitable for courses at graduate level, as well as for practitioners who need to attain or refresh their knowledge of finite elements through private study.
