Definitions for "Finite element analysis"
The reduction of a structure into arbitrarily defined elements over which an approximate solution is obtained by summing the solutions in each element.
A CAD method that determines the structural integrity of a mechanical part or physical construction under design by mathematical simulation of the part and its loading condition.
A process of selecting the optimum combination of materials in a composite based on software analysis.
a method for testing how a part, product
A computer generated method of predicting seal face distortion.
(F.E.A.) is a computer based method of determining stresses and deflections for complex shapes. This technology can determine weak areas on a punch cup before any actual pressing occurs. It also allows the designer to make modifications to strengthen the design.
