 About the Book 

This book offers an introduction to finite-element methods based on simple applications to heat-conduction problems. The phenomenon of heat conduction has the advantage of being familiar from everyday experience and accessible to observation.MoreThis book offers an introduction to finite-element methods based on simple applications to heat-conduction problems. The phenomenon of heat conduction has the advantage of being familiar from everyday experience and accessible to observation. Detailed explanations make the book useful for self-teaching.To enable the beginner to get started, the easiest way of achieving just the visible goal is always selected. In most cases, the linear formula for triangular elements is discussed as one of the simplest treatments. Three concrete technical applications (thermal insulation in old buildings, cooling of guide vanes in a gas turbine, heat transfer in the absorber of a solar collector) accompany the presentation throughout the book and make it clear how the method is transformed into practice.Programming techniques are an important part of the text. For example, methods for saving memory space (hull and band storage techniques) are explained in depth, and many practical hints for the writing and use of FEM programs are given. The book originated in a project-oriented training institution at the Technical University of Berlin. Aimed at students in all fields of engineering science and physics, it can play a role in basic or beginning advanced study at universities and other institutions of higher professional education.
