The early finite element codes in the first edition were written in FORTRAN 77 and QuickBasic for graphical display under WINDOWS. FORTRAN still appears to be the preferred scientific language for the scientist–engineer, and so we felt that it was necessary to include source listings in FORTRAN. For this second edition, FORTRAN 95 versions of 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D codes are maintained on this Web site, along with several MATHCAD, MATLAB, and MAPLE algorithms. Interactive C/C++ and JAVA versions of the 2-D codes are also available. The reader will find these codes more amenable, running under simple mouse clicks and menu lists, and producing graphical displays in real time. While the fundamental principles of the finite element method remain unchanged, applications of the method have continued to advance into new areas, including such fields as nanotechnology and biomedical.
