History Of Finite Element Analysis
1921: Griffith introduced fracture mechanics, an emerging technology. This mechanical discipline finds its own application in metallic structure.
1939: Braunbek introduced the concept of levitation phenomenon. Meissner Ochsenfeld effect, a numerical analysis of levitation in equilibrium and steady state is proposed.
1942: Finite element analysis method was introduced. Richard Courant was the first to develop mathematical method for finite element analysis.
1943: Richard Courant introduced material analysis solution method.
1951: Finite element software was first developed with stress difference values. This was calculated by ASME Code.
