Tony Abbey

Tony Abbey has conducted finite element analysis for over 35 years, including statics, dynamics, composites, nonlinear, optimization, fatigue and fracture mechanics. He has taught FEA related courses for the past 17 years for NAFEMS and as an independent consultant. He has developed a reputation for providing the student with an experience that is full of insight gained from his extensive experience, but which also challenges and motivates.

Tony has been working with FEA for over 35 years, both in Industry and for FEA software providers in the UK and the US. His involvement with analysis started over 33 years ago with his Masterís thesis and continued in the aerospace industry. He has witnessed at first hand the dramatic changes in computing power and numerical techniques that have allowed this technology to mature to an efficient and practical tool.

His informal and interactive presentation style allows the key concepts to be taught in a manner which involves participants fully in the course material. Tony presents papers at NAFEMS and other conferences on a regular basis and has been involved with NAFEMS since its formation.

Tony has had articles published in Desktop Engineering, NASA Tech Briefs, NAFEMS Benchmark as well as for numerous papers and training notes for SAMPE and SAVIAC.
