Question about FEM

  • Wondering engineering student here. So I want to do some FEM analysis with multiple materials (glued-in rods in timber elements, so I have to simulate wood, glue and steel) for my thesis and since my university doesn't have that much expertise with FEM I was wondering:

    1. Can I do this with some Rhino plugins?
    2. Which one ('s) would you suggest?

    I've never used Rhino before, so I'm up for quite a learning curve, but I was wondering, whether or not Rhino is the best tool for me.
