FEA Book Guides Design Engineers

Oct. 7, 2004
The book, Finite-Element Analysis for Design Engineers, provides a guide for those using FEA in product development.

The book, Finite-Element Analysis for Design Engineers, provides a guide for those using FEA in product development. Few books address the needs of those who use FEA as an everyday design tool. Author Paul Kurowski fills that void by focusing on an understanding of FEA fundamentals, which are explained through simple and intuitive examples that can be used by any engineer. This book takes a practical approach, characteristic to the attitudes of design engineers, and offers readers an opportunity to try all discussed topics by solving downloadable exercises using either their own FEA software or the commercial FEA software StressCheck, which is licensed free to readers. A few of the chapter titles include Major Concepts of the Finite-Element Model, Controlling Discretization Errors, and Some Misconceptions and Frequently Asked Questions. The 12-chapter text is available from SAE.
