Finite Element Methods(FEM) for structural design - How and Why?

Focus Areas

  • Mechanics and Structural Design
  • Simplifying the complex – FEM
  • Analysis Steps
  • Element Stiffness, Element Library
  • Nodal Loads
  • Boundary Conditions
  • Modelling Decisions
  • Model Validation
  • Result Review
  • Result Presentation
  • Extension to Dynamic Analysis


Increasing focus on reduction of cost, weight and development time of structures with improved performance of structures necessitates use of computer-aided design and analysis tools. Finite Element Analysis is a methodology that helps engineers in this area. In this methodology, a mathematical model of physical behaviour of a phenomenon is created and is packaged in a software, leaving only the job of creating the geometric model and initial/boundary conditions for the phenomenon to the user. This activity, unless done with proper understanding of how the input data is used to create mathematical model, can lead to totally incorrect results. For effective use of the software, users’ understanding of how the mathematical model is created and how various inputs affect its accuracy is of prime importance.


To provide this insight to the designers/analysts, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organizing a 2 day programme on “Finite Element Methods (FEM) for structural design-How and Why?”

Key Takeaways

After undergoing the programme, the participants will be able to:-

  1. Understand the mechanics and methodology involved in structural design
  2. Understand how this methodology is encapsulated in Finite element Software
  3. Know how FE modeling decisions affect the accuracy of the model
  4. Know how to validate the model and interpret and present results
