This book describes the advantages of object oriented programming for finite element software development. The book explains the overall design philosophy as well as providing the reader with detailed programming information. The OO approach to finite element programming requires a radically different approach to traditional finite element programming. The book highlights the differences and demonstrates the advantages of the OO approach. Sufficient detailed programming information is included to help readers to implement their own OO code or adapt the ideas presented in the book. The book includes sections on: the finite element method; object oriented programming; the finite element class system; the structural model; controlling the calculation processes; as well as examples.
The book is intended for researchers and postgraduate students working in the field of finite element technology. The source code described in the book is available from the author's webpage.
