Information Technology Training Initiative
This material is part of a set of training material for finite element analysis software packages, delveloped by the Manchester Computer Centre UMIST Support Unit under the Universities Funding Council, Information Systems Committee (UFC, ISC) Information Technology Training Initiative (ITTI), during 1993 - 1995.
The material was updated in 2007 under the supervision of Dr Jim Wood, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Strathclyde, who was also a member of the Steering Committee for the original ITTI project. The updating involved conversion of all text documents to pdf, conversion of all associated overheads to Powerpoint and conversion of all figures to jpeg format. Colour was also added to figures.
This updating was funded by the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre.
Subsequently, in 2010, the University of Manchester granted a licence to NAFEMS members to use the material for non-commercial purposes.
