This report by the Finite Element Idealization Task Committee is a comprehensive aid for modeling structures for finite element analysis. The first part covers static analysis. Aspects of dynamic analysis are covered in the second part. In both parts, separate chapters review basic information on finite element models, analysis methods, preprocessing techniques and postprocessing and interpretation of output results. Separate chapters with specific modeling guidelines are included. This book deals directly with the task of idealization of structures for finite element analysis and the application of general purpose finite element programs to perform complex static and dynamic analysis in engineering practice.
