The British based organisation, NAFEMS (www.nafems.org) promotes the effective use of engineering simulation methods such as finite element analysis, multibody system dynamics and computational fluid dynamics. They achieve this through e-learning, regional and international events. They have also numerous publications including a set called Benchmarks. The Benchmarks have been prepared by experts in the respective fields. Each benchmark describes the problem and also provides the required result. This allows an analyst to develop accurate modelling methods on a known problem in advance of using the same techniques for a real engineering analysis.
