A Word Instead of a Conclusion

Abstract

In the preface to this book we stated that it was our conscious intention not to give recommendations as to what particular software product to purchase. We have tried hard to keep this promise of ours. Though, we cannot leave this issue aside, therefore below we give some considerations to be taken into account when planning to buy a finite element computer program for structural analysis. Now that the reader has come to this place and thus has read the book as we do hope, he might already have the idea of the authors’ opinion concerning “good and bad” CAD programs, so such considerations may prove relevant.
