    Can you possibly share the whole book for a download? It’s the best straightforward intro I’ve ever come across. (I’m having my first course in FEA)
    Thank you so much for writing this!

      Thank you for your comment, Sandro.
      My apologies, I don’t have a PDF or a document that contains all the info.

    Dear Prof Samer,

    I am a radiographer and I just started my PhD. I am having difficulties as my PhD project is about bone material property and strength by FEA with MRI & CT and I don’t have any basic background about mechanical engineering.

    May I have any advice or suggestions that could help me to understand the FEA very well.

    Kind regards
