Who Should Attend?

This course has been designed for delegates with no previous finite element experience; it is useful for designers moving into the field of finite element analysis or those looking to understand what FEA can do.

The course is also useful to engineers who need to write specifications for finite element projects and will help interpret and check the results at the conclusion of these projects.
