This book offers a practical view of finite element analysis (FEA) by reviewing the basics of design analysis from an engineering perspective. It provides practical guidelines for specific design problems, such as setting boundaries, contact points between parts, sheetmetal weldments, plastic components, and other common encounter problems. The book also includes a compilation of data which is invaluable to the beginning as well as experienced design analyst.
