Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a useful tool for analyzing the strength of a product without physical testing. It can be used to simulate how and where structures bend or twist, and to show the distribution of stresses and displacements, thus giving insight as to how a product will perform in service.
