Crack and techno don't go well together, you're way better of with XTC or MDMA.

thank you.:):)

I second ANSYS, another good software is Abaqus.  

If you're looking for a textbook resource (more theory than instruction manual) I recommend Finite Element Procedures by Klaus-Jürgen-Bathe.

Thanks, I already ordered the one I mentioned.

@OP

If you are looking for decent structural FEA apps, I recommend SAP2000 or ETABS, especially if you live in North America. ANSYS and Abaqus are high end and are used a lot in high-tech fields like automotive or aerospace, or in the design of complex and unusual structures.

If you are looking for resources, I don't think you are using the right forum, you might want to use this forum
