guidelines and Contents for an Analysis Report
Abstract: An abstract is a short summary of your research project, usually about a paragraph (c. … an abstract prepares readers to follow the detailed information, analyses, and arguments in your full paper; and, later, an abstract helps readers remember key points from your paper.
Key words: Keywords are words that capture the essence of your paper. Keywords make your paper searchable and ensure that you get more citations. Therefore, it is important to include the most relevant keywords that will help other authors find your paper.
Introduction and Problem Description: Description of the objectives of the analysis. Describe the failure criteria or engineering requirements against which the analysis will be compared. Include a physical description of the part to be analyzed. The overall dimensions, material, loading conditions, and description of the operation or application of the part should be included. Obviously, a sketch of the part is helpful.
FEA Code: Brief summary of the finite element program and computer system used for the analysis
Model Description and Assumptions: Include plots of the finite element model and a description of types of elements used, boundary conditions, applied loads and relevant engineering assumptions.
Results and Analysis: Include the important results (displacement, mode shape, thermal, and/or stress contour plots). A discussion should be accompanied these plots, describing the behavior of the model and how it relates to the actual expected behavior of the part. Include tables showing the stresses and displacements (if structure analysis) for critical sections of the model. Include hand calculations, theoretical solutions and/or experimental results supporting the finite element results. A brief discussion of these calculations along with references should be included. For long results or discussions that detract from the flow of the main report, include parts of this section as an appendix to the main body of the report.
Conclusions and recommendations: Describe what was learned from the analysis and what conclusions can be drawn. Summarize the results in conjunction with the failure criteria or engineering requirements. If the analysis shows an inadequate design, recommendation for design modifications would be included in this section.
References: Your reference list should appear at the end of your paper. It provides the information necessary for a reader to locate and retrieve any source you cite in the body of the paper. Each source you cite in the paper must appear in your reference list; likewise, each entry in the reference list must be cited in your text.
The importance of thorough documentation (and judicious use of appendices) cannot be overemphasized. First, documentation is required to support the design or analysis decisions resulting from the finite element analysis. Second, and of equal importance, the process of preparing the report forces you to check all aspects of your analysis. Even if your work situation does not require a formal report, it is strongly recommended that you go through the process described above as a means of checking your analysis. Reports should include enough detail that an experienced analyst could completely reproduce your results from reading the report alone.
