The purpose of this primer is to provide the basics of the Finite Element Method, primarily illustrated through a classical model problem, linearized elasticity.

The topics covered are:
(1) Weighted residual methods and Galerkin approximations,
(2) A model problem for one-dimensional linear elastostatics,
(3) Weak formulations in one dimension,
(4) Minimum principles in one dimension,
(5) Error estimation in one dimension,
(5) Construction of Finite Element basis functions in one dimension,
(6) Gaussian Quadrature,
(7) Iterative solvers and element by element data structures,
(8) A model problem for three-dimensional linear elastostatics,
(9) Weak formulations in three dimensions,
(10) Basic rules for element construction in three-dimensions,
(11) Assembly of the system and solution schemes,
(12) Assembly of the system and solution schemes,
(13) An introduction to time-dependent problems and
(14) A brief introduction to rapid computation based on domain decomposition and basic parallel processing.

... Engineering is an interesting and vast field. New technologies are discovered or invented every day, and the older ones must get updated In the past, engineers used to search libraries or go through various books to keep up with the recent technological advancements or find the solution to various problems. Nowadays, it is possible to do so with the help of just one click.
