Expert Aids to Finite Element System Applications

  • Ian C. Taig


Finite element analysis computer systems are available to many users who have little knowledge of the underlying theory. Expert systems can be developed to assist such users to model their problems and interpret their results properly. The FEASA project evolved a prototype system which shed light on the potential of such systems and the methods available to develop them. Indications are given of future developments and their integration with conventional pre- and post¬processor systems.
