In the years since the fourth edition of this seminal work was published, active research has developed the Finite Element Method into the pre-eminent tool for the modelling of physical systems. Written by the pre-eminent professors in their fields, this new edition of the Finite Element Method maintains the comprehensive style of the earlier editions and authoritatively incorporates the latest developments of this dynamic field. Expanded to three volumes the book now covers the basis of the method and its application to advanced solid mechanics and also advanced fluid dynamics. Volume Three: Fluid Dynamics is intended for readers studying fluid mechanics at a higher level. Although it is an ideal companion volume to Volume One: The Basis, this advanced text also functions as a stand-alone volume, accessible to those who have been introduced to the Finite Element Method through a different route.
Volume 1 of the Finite Element Method provides a complete introduction to the method and is essential reading for undergraduates, postgraduates and professional engineers. Volume 2 concentrates on non-linear solid and structural mechanics and is ideal for postgraduate and professional engineers working in this discipline.
Coverage of the whole range of fluid dynamics - including incompressible slow viscous flow, high-speed supersonic flows, shallow water flow, ocean waves, and metal and plastic forming.Up-to-date material on the Characteristic Galerkin Method.New methodologies for dealing with supersonic and hypersonic behaviours.
