Static FEA Analysis
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) provides a reliable numerical technique for analyzing engineering designs. A FEA programs look at the model as a network of discrete interconnected elements. The Finite Element Method (FEM) predicts the behavior of the model by manipulating the information obtained from all the elements making up the model. The automatic mesher generates a mesh based on a global element size and local mesh control specifications. The size of the generated mesh (number of nodes and elements) depends on the geometry and dimensions of the model as well as the specified element order (draft or high quality), element size, mesh tolerance, mesh control, and contact specifications.
