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

Focus Areas

  • Traditional Design Process and its limitations
  • Approach to “conquering” the limitation – Discretisation approach
  • Application of discretisation approach to the fundamental problem
  • Finite element approachKey considerations in using the methodology
  • Definition and role of Finite Element Method variables – node, element, boundary conditions
  • Considerations for developing “appropriate” model
  • Model Validation
  • Result Review  


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 3 hour on-line programme on “Finite Element Method (FEM) for Structural Design – How, What and Why?” on 23rd May, 2020 at 3:00 pm.. The training programme is aimed at providing the participants the basic understanding of Finite Element Methodolgoy, how it is related to traditional design process and key considerations for its appropriate use.

Key Takeaways

  • Understand the mechanics and methodology involved in structural design
  • Understand how this methodology is encapsulated in Finite element Software
  • Know how FE modelling decisions affect the accuracy of the model
  • Know how to validate the model and interpret and present results
