About the book

FINITE ELEMENT METHOD WITH SOLIDWORKS SIMULATION is written for students who want to use the software while learning the finite element method. The book is also suitable for designers and engineers before using the software to analyze realistic problems. Presented in a lucid manner, the book comprehends the theory of finite element method and the use of SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Spread in twelve chapters it describes finite element method for solving structural mechanics, heat transfer and fluid flow problems. The book is ideal for undergraduate and graduate students in mechanical, aeronautical, civil and chemical engineering as well as researchers.
