I learned and practiced the basics of Finite Element Analysis to determine the displacement and stresses within different bodies as shown. Both SolidWorks and FEMAP were used to conduct the tests and I backed up the results with simplified hand calculations. I also learned the importance of conducting a mesh analysis and determining when it can be ignored.
