Summary

Summary

Offers a practical yet comprehensive study of finite element analysis by reviewing the basics of design analysis from an engineering perspective. The authors provide guidelines for specific design issues, including common encounter problems such as setting boundaries and contact points between parts, sheet metal weldments, and plastic components. They also present a compilation of data intended for the beginning as well as the experienced design analyst. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR


Summary
