Session 1: St Venant’s Principle
30 minutes presentation, 30 minutes curated Q and A
This principle is often quoted in FEA. It is a very generalized statement, but what does it mean and how can we use it in practice?
I explore the background to the principle and discuss how it can be used in practical guidelines.
Several examples are shown in the presentation, then the session opens up for questions.
- What’s your interpretation?
- Do you have any recommendations?
Here is your chance to learn some new ideas, pass on tips, or generally join in the discussion!
