Finite element procedures at the moment are a very powerful and often indispensable a part of engineering analyses and scientific investigations. This book makes a speciality of finite element procedures which might be very useful and are widely employed. Formulations for the linear and nonlinear analyses of solids and structures, fluids, and multiphysics problems are presented, appropriate finite elements are discussed, and solution techniques for the governing finite element equations are given. The book presents general, reliable, and effective procedures which might be fundamental and may also be expected to be in use for a very long time. The given procedures form also the foundations of up to date developments within the field.
