Finite Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis

or FEA is a numerical computational technique (aka, discretization) to simulate deforming an object to see if it will return to its original shape or fail in some way. Mechanical FEA includes strain (tension), stress (compression), bending, friction, and countless other physical phenomena. In linear and nonlinear analyses, FEA is basic to engineering simulation and used throughout thermal/thermodynamics, fluids, electromagnetics, bioengineering, geology, and more.
