However, there are some assumptions and conditions that you have to be aware of before using the power of linear static analysis. Ignoring them could prove very dangerous.
This is a free video course to teach you the method and theory that is used in linear static analysis.
What you will learn in details:
- Why linear static helps tremendously to check product design
- The fundamental assumptions you should absolutely know
- Some simple theory that tells everything in one simple formula
- How to constrain and load your model correctly
- How to use contacts between parts and the traps to avoid
- How to go from linear static to a more advanced analysis

By reading your blog on FEA for all, I really found the missing piece
When I first saw your blog on FEA for all, I thought it was about FEA tutorials and promoting some softwares but only when I started reading your articles on your blog, I could find myself in a position where I found that you wanted to explain FEA to all in a simple way. I was so fascinated with FEA during my 2nd year of graduate studies where I saw those beautiful colorful pictures. But later when i started learning FEA i found it much difficult understanding those equations etc and later when i started using different FEA softwares it was something I felt lacking in those. I did a lot of research and analysis by reading books watching tutorials and found something was missing in all those things trying to teach FEA. Until I read your blog on FEA for all I really found the missing piece. After say 6 longs years of learning FEA still i cant say I am expert by I am now able to understand FEA quite well and a Greater Thanks to you for that. Your blog had a great contribution in it.
Your articles are great to teach simulation engineers...and even the skilled ones!
Thanks Cyprien, after 10 years as simulation engineer within a big automotive company and 5 years as manager of a simulation group, you have have done a work I would have like to do. your scheme and article are very clear, and I use it with my simulation engineer even skilled one. I always request them to explain clearly their results to our "clients" in a simple way even if we put a lot of science our analysis and models. Thanks again for the work you share with the simulation community. Back to basics is always good.
