Finite Element Analysis – FEA

Finite element analysis or FEA could be defined as the application of the finite element method, a numerical method for the solution of field problems described by boundary conditions and partial differential equations.

Finite Element Analysis

The finite element method pre-dates low cost, high power desktop computing by 20 years or more, and the development of code for the solution of various field problems evolved within different industries, at different times, with linear elastic displacement in structures being amongst the first useful applications.

Modern finite element analysis FEA software is available for modeling problems involving static and time-varying magnetic and electric fields, electromagnetic radiation, heat transfer, fluid flow including compressible fluids, stress, including non-linear stress-strain, hyperelasticity and contact.

Best Solution’s expertise, like most finite element analysis FEA consultants, covers some, but not all application areas. If you would like to discuss how we can support you or your team, please contact us. If your problem is not within our scope, we will tell you, and may well be able to help you source the expertise you need.
