The Advantages of the Finite Element Method

Widely popular among the engineering community, the finite element method (FEM) is a numerical technique used to perform finite element analysis of any given physical phenomenon. It has simple, compact, and results-oriented features that are appealing to engineers. Here are six advantages to this technique: Modeling. FEM allows for easier modeling of complex geometrical and […]

What is the Finite Element Method?

The finite element method (FEM) was independently developed by engineers, beginning in the mid-1950s. It approaches structural mechanics problems. The method started with promise in the modeling of several mechanical applications in the aerospace and civil engineering industries. But What Exactly Is It? WiseGeek describes FEM as: “The finite element method is a tool for […]
