Finite element analysis (FEA) is an engineering method for the numerical analysis of complex structures based on their material properties to determine the distribution of stress and strain when such structures are subjected to forces. Its development began in the 1940s in the field of structural engineering. Since then, the numerical method of FEA has been applied to a wide range of different areas in engineering and mathematical physics.
This book collects original and innovative research studies on recent applications in Finite Element Analysis, exhibiting various investigation directions and providing a bird’s eye  view on this very broad matter. The 27 chapters composing it have been grouped into four major domains: Biomedical Engineering, Materials Engineering, Process Analysis and Civil Engineering. It is meant to provide a small but valuable sample of contemporary research  activities around the world in this field and it is expected to be useful to a large number of  researchers. Through its 27 chapters the reader will have access to works related to dental  prosthetic design, orthopaedics, polymer scaffolds architecture, viscoelastic materials,  vehicle-bridge dynamic interactions and several other exciting topics.
The text is addressed not only to researchers, but also to professional engineers, engineering  lecturers and students seeking to gain a better understanding of where Finite Element  Analysis stands today. It has been written at a level suitable for the use in a graduate course  on applications of finite element modelling and analysis (mechanical, civil and biomedical  engineering studies, for instance).
I am very honoured to be editing such a valuable book, which contains contributions of a  selected group of researchers describing the best of their work. I would like to express my  sincere gratitude to all of them for their outstanding chapters.
I also wish to acknowledge the Sciyo editorial staff, in particular Iva Lipovic, for indispensable  technical assistance in book preparation and publishing.
