Reviews

From the reviews:

"The purpose of this book is to illustrate how the computational environment of Maple can be used in a finite element … . It gives to the reader a very unique insight into the finite element method together with symbolic programming approach … . In summary, this book is an excellent introductory book for finite element method and I strongly recommend to all undergraduate and postgraduate students and also to engineers and scientists who wish to program easily the finite element method." (T.E. Simos, Journal of Computational Methods in Sciences and Engineering, Vol. 3 (2), 2003)

"This book is an essential tool written to be used as the primary text for an undergraduate or early postgraduate course as well as a reference book for engineers and scientists who want to develop quickly finite-element programs." (European Journal of Mechanical and Environmental Engineering, Vol. 47 (2), 2002)
