About the book

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS WITH COMSOL presents a clear theory of finite element method with the use of COMSOL Multiphysics software. Thirteen chapters of this book describe the finite element procedures for solving structural mechanics, heat transfer and fluid flow problems. In each chapter, the governing differential equations and corresponding finite element formulations are described. Academic examples are presented together with detailed steps on using COMSOL. In addition, the last chapter shows how to use the software to solve general form of the differential equations by the finite element method. This chapter demonstrates a unique capability of COMSOL that does not exist in most of other software packages. The book is ideal for beginners to understand the finite element packages. The book is ideal for beginners to understand the finite element method and how to use COMSOL Multiphysics software in a short time.
