How many frames and trusses have you worked on?

You won't be able to understand FEA until you learn structural basics in Statics 101. You also won't understand FEA unless you have had a semester or two of calculus. FEA is advanced, for complicated, real-world type applications using computer analysis. Statics is for simple problems that can be solved using algebra and trig.
