Prior to the description of the most important modeling methods and their features, it would be helpful to introduce some questions that may come to mind of those who want to use modeling, and attempt to give answers. Although some answers are already given in the previous chapter, a more elaborated approach is presented in this section. The questions raised apply to all kinds of modeling; the answers mostly concern FEM, without excluding all the other methods. In the next chapter some more questions and answers, this time solely for FEM, will be presented.
