FEM/BEM Notes, an
introduction to the basic FEM (and BEM) method by Peter Hunter and Andrew
of the Dept. of Engineering Science, Auckland University. Postscript and pdf
of the notes may be downloaded. The contents include studies of heat
linear elasticity and modal analysis. Examples illustrating the text are set
using the CMISS FE package (in binary only).
Vector Space Applications Workbook. Not really a beginner's handbook, but
it provides an excellent link between theory and object-oriented
FE programming with many examples. Suitable for intermediate level
study. See our reviews of the VSP Workbook.
