Are there rules of thumb for FEA? How is FEA used in industry?

  1. Jun 27, 2013 #1
    Hi Everyone

    I have been working on FEA for past 2 years. However my work has always been academic ( either assignments or validating certain experiments). I have never been exposed to any industry work in FEA.

    I am curious on how FEA is used in the industry ( specially in engineering designs ).

    Also , are there any thumb rules for FEA. There are some thumb rules on FEA. But what about the physics/mechanics of the problem ?

    Can you guys please share your thoughts, experience or any weblinks/books ?

    I just found only one book ( through google books ) which unfortunately isn't available in my librabry.

    I just want to be exposed to how FEA is used in the industry.

    Thanks in advance
