He has written 3 books on the subject, including the popular &quot;Building Better Products with Finite Element Analysis&quot; as well as numerous articles for Desktop Engineering &amp;&nbsp;Design News magazines. Vince has been an invited speaker and instructor with engagements all over the United States as well as Europe, South Africa &amp; Asia. He was nominated by peers to lead the founding of NAFEMS North America (<a href="http://www.nafems.org" title="www.nafems.org">www.nafems.org</a>) and was selected by this organization to the Founding Member list for the international&nbsp;Professional Simulation Engineer program based on his career contributions to the simulation industry.</p> <p class="style32" style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; line-height: normal;">Prior to focusing on simulation, Vince was a design engineer and engineering manager accumulating numerous patents, many due to novel uses of&nbsp;FEA (at the time) and learning first-hand the importance of properly applied simulation for improved innovation. Vince currently leads&nbsp;the initiative for&nbsp;growth and development of mechanical simulation at Autodesk globally.</p> </div> </div> </fieldset> <div class="node-body webinar-body">Many engineers are modeling welds inside of weldments using FEA with varying degrees of confidence on weld stresses.
