Abstract

Following on from the Copenhagen workshop, where the various barriers to the effective use of finite element analysis were identified and discussed, this second workshop considered methods of reducing some of these barriers. It was agreed at the Copenhagen workshop that a questionaire be prepared to enable the views of a much wider representative section of users to be established, given the key importance of this issue to the FENET community. The design of a web-based questionaire was discussed and a preliminary survey of the views of FENET members, using the questionaire, was made available for examination.
