Dear Colleague,

This e-mail is an invitation to participate in a worldwide survey on the use of finite element (and related) technology. The survey is being carried out by FENET (, which is a network of various organisations with the common objective of improving both the quality of industrial applications of finite element technology and the level of confidence that can be placed in the computed results. The network is engaged in a range of activities aimed at facilitating the effective exchange of experience and knowledge amongst the different industrial sectors. This questionnaire is an attempt to obtain an overview of the current finite element scene throughout the world. In addition to seeking the views of industrial users, the views of software vendors and academia are also being sought.

The results of the questionnaire will be made available to all respondents. In addition to documenting current state of practice, by industry sector, it is anticipated that the results will provide the basis for other useful business benefits, including 

7 Input to technical strategies and roadmaps;
7 A focus for identifying potential areas of competitive advantage;
7 Identification of areas for possible code development;
7 Identification of differences in awareness and use of technology across sectors;

As a small token of our appreciation in helping us gather this information, on completion of the questionnaire, we will provide you with a free download of the NAFEMS document "How to Integrate CAD and FE". The link to this will be forwarded to you when the questionnaire is complete, and the results are available.

Please feel free to forward this e-mail to any of your colleagues who may also be interested in completing the questionnaire.
