The best online FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS course on the planet.
Finite element analysis is one of the top skills required to get a job or develop yourself as a stress or structural analysis engineer. Not only is it critical in aerospace, but also in numerous other fields such as automotive, space, construction, civil structures, ground transportation, rail roads, aviation, marine, military, bio medical or mechanical, packaging, composites, electronics, and the list goes on.
Why? So why would you need practical FEA knowledge? In today's fast paced product development life cycles, tight budgets and break neck schedules, FEA is a must to cut down the time required to design, develop and produce a product, with minimal waste, or actual prototype testing.
Who? There are millions of people in this world out of the many billions who graduate with a degree or diploma in various engineering fields. Many hundreds of thousands among them are all highly motivated and eager to get into a job in the field of structural analysis.
How? How are you going to compete against all of them? How will you set yourself apart? Give yourself the edge by learning Finite Element Analysis.
What? So what is in it for you in this course? You will learn the ins and outs about what FEA is all about, how to create manipulate analyze and process different models and analysis types, built on a foundation of step by step instructions of the FEA program's user interface.
Where? And best of all, you can enjoy any course, web page or blog post on this website, on any device such as a desktop, laptop, mobile or tablet. Make sure you have a wifi or a high speed internet connection with cookies enabled.
This course will lay the critical foundation you need for more advanced courses in aerospace cabin interiors stress analysis, which I will add in the near future.

Have you tried to figure out how to do things by asking in various forums only to get lost and be disappointed?
Guess what... I have been there, I have done that, don't you wish there was a structured course that gets right to the point and makes it very very simple to understand? Just look at the testimonials below, you will know what I mean.
This course is not for you if you want to get into FEM Theory at research level. This is for those who need Practical & Real World Aerospace Industry Approach...
There is plenty of free theory and engineering resources on the web, but that may not help you in a practical sense...
Get up to speed quickly on how to do things, this is what you need to start working...
Is stress analysis worth anything without accurate loads?
Its only as accurate as the loads are...
So what do you think gets you accurate loads?
Finite Element Analysis... but only 'if you know what you are doing...'
Bulk of stress analysis work is actually developing loads...
Guess what... I have been there, I have done that, for more than a decade now...So don't waste your valuable time on the web looking for disorganized free stuff... invest in getting real world knowledge.

My Background: I graduated college in 1979 with a Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering, and I have been an aircraft stress/structural engineer and manager at various companies over the last 35 years. During the last 17 years I have worked in the executive aircraft interiors world. Stress Ebook LLC. FEA Course:
This online course is well laid out and very informative, especially for an analyst in the executive aircraft interiors industry, but also for any analyst who wants to learn about FEMAP and its capabilities. The course provides clear, concise explanations and descriptions for the majority of the commands (drop-down menus, toolbars, etc.) that are used in modeling and analysis. It is a great beginners course, the building of actual models in the last few sessions really helps to tie all the lessons together, as do the instructor-provided, downloadable models presented thru-out the course. I'm looking forward to the more advances courses as they become available online.
My Background: I graduated in 1980 with an MSc in Materials Science preceded by a Bachelors Degree in Science, both in the UK. I have worked for over 25 years, mostly in the aerospace industry on M&P and Structures Concept Design specializing in Composite Materials. Stress Ebook LLC. FEA Course:
I find that the online teaching method with detailed on screen views is a refreshing method of learning. The tuition explains the various steps in great detail and being online one can go back anytime to query or refresh what has gone before. The course acts both as a useful remainder of what I have done before and slowly introduces new and up to date concepts. I plan to continue onto the more advanced courses as they become available.
My Background: I graduated in 1986 with an MEng in Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Lisbon - Instituto Superior Tecnico, Portugal. In the last seven years of my career I have been working as a Stress Engineer in the Aerospace Industry and have participated in major airplane development programs; Bombardier (CSeries ; G7000/8000), Airbus (A350 XWB, A380, A400M), Boeing 787, Embraer KC390 and Mitsubishi Regional Jet;
Stress Ebook LLC. FEA Course:
This course did everything right. From organization to presentation to interaction, this is a good model for what online training should be. The tutor has a very clear and concise teaching manner which works well for me. I'm going to register in Stress Ebook LLC. more advanced courses already available online.
I am very impressed by the organized thinking process that has gone in to putting together the course subject matter and videos on FEMAP and Analysis of Aircraft Cabin Interior Structures. I think with the contents of Stress Ebook, Surya has filled a big gap in the teaching of FEMAP in the Aircraft Interiors Industry. The way he narrates is so simple and clear, that in itself will be considered a rare achievement. I wish him success all the way.
"Surya's website and online courses are of a top quality. I do not know of any other similar way to get access to industrial value content. This is more or less how it is done in the industry. I took this course because I needed more knowledge of the actual stress analyst work while my past experience in the design area. Also although I have experience in composite design, my experience was in aero structures and I needed conversion to interiors which I managed to do with the course. I can say that if you invest in this it is money well spent, but you need to plan your time to make it most effective." Andrija Ekmedzic Head of Engineering, Konelek
My Background: I have graduate with diploma engineer in 1998, got my master degree in 2003 and PhD in 2007 in Serbia. I have been working since 1999 as an engineer and lead design engineer. In my current role I work as a design checker on Airbus A350XWB composite structures for Airbus suppliers.
