Introduction to CMU Mini-FEA (November 2006):

Learn the basic concepts of FEA with this simple, web-based tutorial, underwritten by CMU and the National Science Foundation. The freely-available program helps students learn mechanics of materials and introduces them to a technology that is important in contemporary engineering practice

http://engineering-education.com/miniFEA/instr_intro.htm

 


 

Introduction to Mini-FEA and its use in class:

http://www.me.cmu.edu/academics/courses/nsf_edu_proj/mini_fea/

What is the CMU Mini-FEA Program?
The CMU Mini-FEA Program is a very simple Finite Element Analysis (FEA) program that: (1) helps students learn Strength of Materials (SOM) and (2) exposes students to FEA. The program is simple to learn and use, because it solves a small class of problems: planar loading of isotropic, elastic, rectangular bodies with elements of uniform size and shape.
