Covid-19 or Coronavirus is causing a lot of us engineers to be forced to work from home, at least those of us who work on a computer most days.

Regardless of how many “fragile” stickers you put on a package, there is no guarantee that your valuable product will be handled with care while its in transit.
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.
