Pricing and Availability

Pricing and dates are pending, please check back.



Despite the ready availability of inexpensive software and hardware and the competitive pressures that are driving their use, successful Finite Element Analysis (FEA) still requires a high level of knowledge and expertise.  This course provides a comprehensive yet practical understanding of FEA methodology applicable to every industry. 

Each participant will receive a copy of the book, Finite Element Analysis for Design Engineers, by Dr. Paul Kurowski.

You Will Learn To:
 - Explain FEA formulations and modeling processes
 - Describe fundamental assumptions in FEA tools for error analysis
 - Describe different modeling techniques and types of analyses
 - Identify common errors, traps and misconceptions in FEA
 - Explain how to use FEA as a tool of concurrent product development process
