This book is written for industry designers and engineering students with limited knowledge of finite element analysis. The intent of this book is to introduce the learner to FEA concepts and proper CAD techniques in order to be able to get satisfactory results in the designer's models. It will give you a basic understanding of what you need to know in order to perform finite element analysis using Pro/MECHANICA. By going through the lessons the user will be able to perform structural static analysis and model large assemblies in FEA.

This book will teach you to:

  • Identity appropriate use of elements for any CAD or FEA software created models
  • Verify convergence and software solutions
  • Be comfortable with the approximation of his or her solution
  • Be confident with his or her results
