Design optimization is one of the largest advantages of finite element analysis (FEA). Though gaining a strong understanding of the performance of your product with FEA you can reduce material, prevent stress concentrations, remove bottlenecks, and attain desirable performance attributes.
Finite element analysis (FEA) is the analysis or simulation of a phenomenon using the finite element method (FEM).
The finite element analysis (FEA) method is used to model and approximate physical phenomenon through the use of partial differential equations. Engineers apply the finite element method (FEM) through using FEA computer software which provides critical insight into a design’s performance prior to physical testing.
