I’m an engineer that learned FEA by on the job training. Model set up and element selection by similarity to existing models or from more experienced users. This course helped me personally establish a foundation for understanding the finite element method, especially concepts about formulations of element types, element selection and the impact on the stiffness matrix and how poor modeling analytically influences your results. Patrick provides a wealth of knowledge with a good mix of experience from his time in the aviation industry and his work as a specialist with the FAA. Francesco is a key performer who is very personable, very knowledgeable and provides a good atmosphere and approach to learning.
