NAFEMS Workbook of Examples


The Workbook forms one of a series of NAFEMS publications aimed at promoting awareness of Finite Element theory and practice. In particular, this document complements the Finite Element Primer and the Guidelines to Finite Element Practice and is intended to be used both as supplementary documentation to the NAFEMS recommended 30 hour Finite Element training course (summarised in Appendix A), and as a personal reference for the junior analyst.

Throughout the workbook the exercises are kept geometrically simple, to minimise the modelling effort required, ensuring that the reader can complete each task without resorting to the use of graphical preprocessors.
