Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerised method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow and other physical effects. Finite element analysis shows whether a product will break, wear out or work the way it was designed.

Finite element analysis helps predict the behaviour of products affected by many physical effects, including:

Mechanical stress
Mechanical vibration
Heat transfer
Fluid flow
Plastic injection moulding
