Abstract
Advances in the computer utilization of finite element models of real structures have allowed more rapid design and analysis proceedures. The use of relevant computer codes by engineers is presently routine. In this regard the finite element method should be viewed as one of many analysis tools that can be utilized by designers. As in all such tools its strengths, weaknesses and proper use must be carefully considered. This paper gives some discussion and examples which indicate the judicious use of the method and how it usually forms a part of broader design and analysis considerations which make use of engineering judgement in a given situation.
