An Introduction to Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis
with applications to heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and solid mechanics
Second Edition
J. N. Reddy
 A textbook with clear and simple explanations of concepts from nonlinear analysis of topics in engineering
 Covers three main areas: heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and solid and structural mechanics
 Contains worked out examples and problem sets so readers can test their understanding
 Thoroughly revised second editon with substantial amounts of material and new chapters
 Solutions manual available to lecturers
 There is no book on the market that compares with the present work in terms of details of (a) finite element model development, (b) computer implementation, (c) computations involved in solving example problems, and (d) exercise problems.
New to this Edition:
 Extensively revised chapter (Chapter 1) on mathematical preliminaries that includes a section on applied functional analysis
 New chapter on nonlinear continuum mechanics (Chapter 2)
 Special chapter on finite element models of shells (Chapter 8)
 Extensively enlarged chapter (Chapter 9) that includes latest developments in the large deformation analysis of shells
 Newly organized chapters on fluid mechanics (Chapter 10 on weak form Galerkin finite element models and Chapter 11 on leastsquares finite element models)
 Chapter 12 on nonlinear elasticity, plasticity, and viscoelasticity is made available online
 Additional explanations, examples, and problems have been added to all chapters
