Can anyone reccomend me a book or site for learning finite element method with mathematica, besides wolfram language official site, https://reference.wolfram.com/language/FEMDocumentation/tutorial/FiniteElementOverview.html. A saw that there is a lot of material for matlab but very few for mathematica.

    $\begingroup$ Are you looking to understand the finite element method (so that in principle you could implement it yourself), or just learn how to solve PDE using Mathematica's FEM tools, without fully understanding the method? $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Nov 14 '18 at 9:07
  • $\begingroup$ I am familiar with FEM analysis. I am good with working with abaqus, I would like to learn more about FEM programming in mathematica. But like I said, it seams there are no books. Only online documentation. $\endgroup$ – Cro Simpson2.0 Nov 14 '18 at 14:13

    $\begingroup$ Do you find that this tutorial is not structured? It has sections and subsections, and presents the topic in a coherent manner. I do not see the difference from a book, other than that it is not printed on paper (but you can print the notebooks). If you have concrete suggestions for improvement, perhaps you can mention them. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Nov 14 '18 at 15:52

    $\begingroup$ Just to be clear, I do not think the question is invalid. I was just wondering about your motivation. $\endgroup$ – Szabolcs Nov 14 '18 at 19:33
