To push the integration of design and analysis, design engineers are forced to perform FE-Analyses by themselves, especially the simple and repeating ones. Complex and more difficult tasks remain to the analysis engineer. To perform these types of analyses the designer faces a huge number of aspects of a FE-Analysis. One of these aspects is investigated in detail: the selection of elements. Based on mechanical states of stress the impacts of element selection on the result quality of FE-Analyses are investigated and evaluated. To get in touch with the designer, an extended form of design catalogue is developed covering certain aspects of FE-Analyses. Several examples of real-life design parts show the application of the catalogue.

Keywords: FEA, CAD, design, analysis
