Despite many attempts to unify the fields of CAD and FEA software have to date represented two different (though interconnected) worlds. Isogeometric Analysis presents a highly original yet viable solution to the integration of the two methodologies. Taking advantage of the incre...ased computational power available today, they propose combining both packages using complex NURBS geometry in the FEA application directly. This will allow models to designed, tested and adjusted in one go and offer a breakthrough that will change greatly the way automobile and aerospace design around the world is handled. This is a groundbreaking publication from the originators of isogeometric analysis, presenting a viable solution to the integration of CAD and FEA. It is presented with fully integrated colour figures and illustrations throughout, and presents a pioneering isogeometric approach that has the potential for revolutionising the elaborate practices that at present dominate engineering design and analysis. It promotes understanding of both design and analysis requirements, helping those on each side of the CAD/ FEA divide to further the state of their respective arts. It features a systematic build-up, starting with a tutorial about how isogeometric analysis is developed and discussing its foundations, before advancing to a comprehensive coverage of the most recent developments in the technique. It teaches the reader how to perform isogeometric analyses.Read more

J. Austin Cottrell, Thomas J. R. Hughes & Yuri Basilievs, University of Texas at Austin, USA J. Austin Cottrell is a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Texas at Austin, having received his PhD in Computational and Applied Mathematics in 2007. Isogeometric analysis is a topic pioneered by his graduate research under the supervision of Tom Hughes. Tom Hughes was a leading professor of mechanical engineering at Stanford University before being lured to join the University of Texas at Austin in 2002 as Professor of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics within the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences. He is co-editor of the International Journal of Computer Methods in Applied Mechanics and Engineering, a founder and past President of USACM and IACM, and past Chairman of the Applied Mechanics Division of ASME. A world leader in the development of the finite element method, he has received the Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize from ASCE, the Melville Medal from ASME, the Computational Mechanics Award from the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers, the von Neumann Medal from USACM, the Gauss-Newton Medal from IACM, and the Worcester Reed Warner Medal from ASME. Dr. Hughes is a member of the National Academy of Engineering. Yuri Basilievs also obtained his PhD from the University of Texas at Austin in 2007 under the supervision of Tom Hughes.
