The book discusses the basics of the finite element method in a simple and systematic way. The book will serve as a basic learning tool for the undergraduate and postgraduate students in civil and mechanical engineering whose main interest is to carry out stress analysis. However, the concepts are presented in sufficiently general form so that the book serves as a valuable learning aid for students with other backgrounds, as well as practising engineers.
