While there is no formal textbook for MENG 421, there is a wealth of information in the many web pages for this class. Start with the classhome page. In addition, you should study the following books that can be found on reserve in theTech libraryusing LIBROS. These books cover far more detail than the class does so you should begin by reading the first few chapters of each book. Then you should study the material throughout the books that matches the material presented in the course. There are also other finite element books in the library.
