This manual describes the analysis method by the finite element method (FEM) used in FrontISTR.

Regarding the stress analysis method of solids, the infinitesimal deformation linear elasticity static analyais method is described first, and geometric nonlinear analysis method and elastoplasticity analysis method which are required when handling finite deformation problems are described next. Furthermore, a summarized evaluation method of the facture mechanics parameters which can be acquired using the results of the stress analysis by FEM is described. Finally, th eigenvalue analysis and heat conduction analysis method is described.
