4. FEM tutorial

This chapter introduces notions needed to use finite element modeling in the SDT. It illustrates how to define mechanical problems (model, boundary conditions, loads, etc.), compute and post-process the response

- using the feplot Graphical User Interface,
- or using script commands.

The GUIs are described and the connections between graphical and low level data are detailed for

- the model data structures,
- the case (i.e. DOFs, boundary conditions, loads, ...),
- the response to a specified case,
- the results post-processing .
