NCKU Professor’s Finite Element Simulations Book Popular Among Universities

Finite Element Simulations with ANSYS Workbench, one of the most popular books on in its category, is written by Dr. Huei-Huang Lee, an associate professor of the Department of Engineering Science at National Cheng Kung University (NCKU), southern Taiwan.

The 602-page book was first published in 2010 by SDC Publications (USA), which is well known for the computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE) learning.

Moreover, the book has been adopted as a textbook by many universities throughout the world for years. “It is designed to be used in courses including Finite Element Methods, and CAE,” Prof. Lee revealed.

He also said, “So far, the universities which use the book include University of Gavie (Sweden), Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil), Rochester Institute of Technology (USA), KEPCO International Nuclear Graduate School (Korea), Polytechnic University of Catalonia (Spain), and École de technologie supérieure (Canada).”

ANSYS, Inc., a U.S.-based engineering simulation software developer, has decided to use the book as a training tutorial, and invited Prof. Lee to present a speech to their academic customers.

According to Prof. Lee, the Finite Element Methods is one of key technologies in engineering designs, and ANSYS is one of the most popular programs that implement this technology.

Prof. Lee has been working on software development, research, and the teaching of Finite Element Methods for over 30 years.

Mechanics of Materials Labs with SolidWorks Simulation, Prof. Lee’s second book in English, was launched on October 30.

His two additional books are scheduled to be published during 2014: Engineering Dynamics Labs with SolidWorks Simulation, and Engineering Statics Labs with SolidWorks Simulation.

Prof. Lee revealed that with the publication of these three books, he is expecting to enhance the learning of Engineering Mechanics for junior college students through a series of well designed lab exercises and push down the CAE education to a junior college level.

CAE courses are conventionally taught in graduate or senior college years, Prof. Lee added.
