This book introduces the theory of the finite element method using a balanced approach between its mathematical formulations and programming implementation. The computer implementation is carried out using MATLAB, while the practical applications are carried out in both MATLAB and Abaqus. All of the key steps are presented in great detail. MATLAB will allow the reader to focus on the finite element method by alleviating the programming burden. Detailed step-by-step procedures for solving sample problems with Abaqus interactive and keyword editions are provided at the end of each chapter.
