Evaluation of Finite-Element Software Packages for Stress Analysis of Laminated Composites



Current mechanical design and analysis requirements are such that advanced techniques, and the finite-element method in particular, are used routinely, often by people with little or no theoretical background or training. Selecting a software package for dissemination to a user community is a significant task, especially given the initial cost, the cost of user training, and the impact that use or abuse of the package will have on future products and manpower requirements.
