The main purpose of hosting this library on the Web is to provide a learning resource for engineering students here at the University of Massachusetts and at other universities. In MIE 605 graduate students are required to complete a term project that involves the application of the finite element method to a  reasonably complex engineering problem which is selected by the student and approved by the instructor. Often these projects are related to the graduate student's research area. The project requires the use of a commercial finite element code, such as ANSYS, ABAQUS, IDEAS Master Series and Pro Mechanica.
