Oasys Application Specialist, Peter Debney, was the main speaker at the IStructE hosted event that took place on Wednesday 20th June. Tickets for the event were sold out with the presentation being made available via YouTube livestream. You can watch the recording online below.
In the lecture Peter explored some classic mistakes made in FEA models and talked about the best practices on how to avoid them. Peter Debney has spent many years building FEA models of dubious quality. He now puts that experience into practice by helping engineers with their own modelling problems. There are a number of errors that appear time and time again, some with minor consequences and some with very serious ones.
