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.

P.N. Godbole obtained B.Tech. (Hons.) in Civil Engineering from IIT Bombay and
joined the University of Roorkee (IIT Roorkee) under Technical Teachers’ Training
Programme of the Government of India, wherein he completed his Master of
Engineering in Structural Engineering. He obtained his Ph.D. from the University
College of Swansea, United Kingdom under the Commonwealth Scholarship and
Fellowship programme under the guidance of Prof. O.C. Zienkiewicz. He has
served in various capacities at the University of Roorkee, including Dean
(Research) and retired as Professor of Civil Engineering. After superannuation, he
was with VNIT, Nagpur for more than 10 years, where he was awarded AICTE and
UGC Emeritus Fellowships and, later on, continued as Professor Emeritus. He has
a wide experience of teaching, research, consultancy and has published more
than 120 research papers in national and international journals and conferences. He
has supervised 25 Ph.D. candidates. His main areas of interest are the finite
element method, computer-aided design, and wind effects on structures and steel
