Pro/Mechanica Reference Material

Pro/Mechanica Reference Material

Pro/Mechanica Reference Material

Hello all,

I have recently been given the task of performing structural analysis of mechanical components at my company using Pro/Mechanica.  I was hoping someone could recommend a good reference book I can purchase to become more familiar with Pro/Mechanica's ability.  A good reference book on the FEA method would be helpful as well.  I was looking at purchasing "Introduction to Finite Element Analysis Using Pro/Mechanica Wildfire 4.0"  Has anyone used it?

Any Help would be greatly appreciated

RE: Pro/Mechanica Reference Material

Author "Toogood" has a very good introduction textbook for Mechancia.  There is also a good book, "Building Better Products with FEA" that might prove useful as well.

RE: Pro/Mechanica Reference Material

Thanks, I appreciate the help.  I have a good understanding of Mechanica but I really want to increase my confidence level when using it.

RE: Pro/Mechanica Reference Material

The best way to get good at ProM is to correlate with hand calcs or even better test data.
