Finite Element Analysis (FEA) can be a useful tool to determine stress levels in structures and optimize design. Common challenges faced by engineers include: pressure to rely wholly on FEA results; which FEA results can be trusted for assessment; and comparing fatigue Standards details with FEA details in real structures.
This seminar provides an overview of the positives and negatives of FEA with particular emphasis on fatigue and weld design and is of specific value for structural, mechanical and forensic engineers.
Date: Tuesday 24 October
Time: 12.00 for 12.30pm start until 5:00pm
