Introducing a new book, "Hands on Applied Finite Element Analysis"

The main purpose of this book is to equip, both undergraduate and graduate students as well as professionals, who are craving to start up/enhance their learning, with hands on experience in solving real life Finite Element Analysis (FEA) problems.


This book is especially designed for mechanical, biomedical, mechatronics and civil engineering students who are focusing in stress analysis, heat transfer, and vibration characteristics of the system of their interest. At the same time, this book may also serve to the students from different backgrounds, who have special interest in FEA. The layout of this book is designed in a way that it steps forward with the solution of easier problems to more complicated ones, and can be suitably used as an auxiliary book for any level of Finite Element Course.  


Hands on Applied Finite Element Analysis Application with ANSYS is truly an extraordinary book that offers practical ways of tackling FEA problems in machine design and analysis. In this book, 35 good selection of example problems have been presented, offering students the opportunity to apply their knowledge to real engineering FEA problem solutions by guiding them with real life hands on experience. 


AIAA Journal Book Review - Posted online on 29 Dec 2015

... In conclusion this text is a good reference for the use of the ANSYS software. The text considers a wide range of problems utilizing a large subset of the capabilities of the Ansys software and presents these problems in a clear and concise way. Generally the author gives the by hand solution to a problem and then shows how the software can be used to solve the problem.  This is an excellent way to learn any feature of any software package and it is done very well.  The text is especially useful for users who are comfortable with using a Batch and Command Input Mode for interfacing with the software rather than the Graphical User Interface.  This can be helpful in doing somewhat repetitive problems where input text code from previous solutions can be modified for use in solving the related problem in a batch mode or if the user works in an environment where archiving of the actual input text file for a problem is required.  Another advantage of this technique is that Ansys does not make available all elements in the current Graphical User Interface.  If a user is comfortable with an older element, this method allows its use since the core Ansys software has these elements still available.
