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 […]
