Finite Element (FE) method is a numerical approach made available for engineers to perform stress analyses on engineering components and structures. The method has been made available, in the form of commercial FE analysis software as essential design and analysis tool for engineers. The software can be employed for solving problems involving complex geometries, combined loadings and non-linear materials responses where analytical solution is limited or often nonexistent. Being a general purpose design and analysis software, its utilization requires a thorough understanding of the simulation methodology. This includes continuum discretization, representation of boundary conditions, selections of material models, element mesh optimization, model validation and physical interpretation of numerical results. These requirements rest beyond traditional university-level courses on theoretical aspects and numerical implementation of the method.

At the end of the workshop, participants should be able to
–  Describe steps in solving engineering problems using FE method.
–  Identify essential requirements in performing engineering simulation of structural problems.
–  Set-up FE model of engineering structures for solution using Abaqus software.
–  Interpret, evaluate and present FE results for displacements, strains and stresses.
