Finite Element Analysis (FEA) eg- CAD, PRO-E etc

Paper instructions:
In modern engineering the ability to simulate conditions through the use of sophisticated software is

essential.  To assess components and assemblies for stress, strain, displacement and failure when

subject to loading, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used.

You are required to produce a report critically analysing the use of FEA in the engineering industry.

In your report you are expected to discuss the benefits and limitations of FEA, and where possible a

worked example should be included.  Your report should be 2000 words (+ 10%) and presented in the

following format:

•    Front Cover
•    Abstract
•    Lists of Figures / Abbreviations
•    Contents Page
•    Introduction
•    Subject Matter
•    Conclusions
