Finite Element Analysis, an Automobile Engineer's Tool 740338

The finite element method as a modern technique for the automobile engineer will become fully effective provided that all its possibilities and requirements are taken into account. As a basic prerequisite for such a development, the importance of computer analysis, experimentation and mechanical design are illustrated and expectations with regard to finite element programming systems are shown, coupled with explanations covering the verification of the finite element method and its qualified use as an absolutely necessary prerequisite for success. Systems used or taken into consideration by Daimler-Benz are critically reviewed and some successful computer projects conducted are presented.
