Caution Using Finite Element Analysis


The early stages of computerized engineering, in the early 1960's to the mid 1980's there was a distinction between designers and stress analysts. Designers designed structures and products and passed those designs to the analysts by way of a set of Engineering drawings, and later electronically with design files. Designers were trained and gained experience in design and using design tools whereas analysts were trained and gained experience using analysis tools.

Analysts were knowledgeable in the limitations and restrictions of element formulations, modeling of boundary conditions, differences in solution techniques, and deformation and stress result interpretations. They were familiar with the need to, and the procedures to, verify analyses. Even with trained and experienced analysts, many analyses
