This paper, through example, illustrates the use of the finite element method in analyzing automotive components.
NASTRAN, the large-scale, general-purpose digital computer program based on the concept of finite element was used for predicting structural behavior. Each example is discussed in sufficient detail to describe the general finite element analysis procedure.
