 July 28, 2004, 22:50 FEM for CFD #1 ted Guest   Posts: n/a Can anyone recommend the best text out there to learn FEM for doing CFD? I have NO experience in FEM at all, and a very little bit with finite differences. I want to learn Galerkin FEM. Thanks!

They are in great detail. Check out http://caswww.colorado.edu/courses.d/IFEM.d/Home.html he also has lecture notes on Adavance and Non-Linear FEM. Also a basic book by J.N.Reddy (professor at TAMU) called "Introduction to Finite Element method" is good for beginners is good. A low-price McGraw Hill edition is available in my country (India) for as low as 3 \$. Regards, Abhijit
