Good Day to you all. Is there a simple self study material for learning FEA concepts. I want to specialize in FEA but, unfortunately I have not undergone a course. If you find it please share with me.
Unfortunately FEA ist not that ‘simple’ …
Do you want to study the theoretical background or just learn how to use a FEA Program ??
There are plenty of good books on the market…

This is a very good course that covers both theoretical and practical aspects (learning to use a FEA software), that I would strongly recommend (many thousands have already taken this course):
+1 to Erik,
Here’s another useful resource by the same author, Rajesh Bhaskaran, of Cornell University
Take a look at Building Better Products with Finite Element Analysis by Adams and Askenazi. I think it’s out of print but maybe a used copy on bookfinder
I can recommend this book too. It’s the best practical guide to FEA. Another interesting book of this kind is “Practical Finite Element Analysis” by Gokhale. However books can’t replace courses and especially own practice.
Despite being an avid self-learner, there’s really no experience for working in a consultancy from a talented senior engineer.
After all you can’t become the worlds best racecar driver through reading a few mechanical engineering textbooks.
Erik +1: Just enrolled for the course. Thank you for the link.
Learning through books and accompanied by software verification problems/examples will be easy and very effective.
