finite element analysis: a numerical computational tool
Finite Element Analysis. FEA is a software technique used to study stresses and strains on mechanical parts or components. Virtual prototyping software automatically generates input loads for FEA. In addition, FEA-computed component flexibility ("stiffnesses") can be imported into virtual prototyping software to accurately simulate the motion behaviour of systems with flexible parts.
Finite Element Structural Analysis
Finite element analysis. A method of analysis used in situations that are difficult to model by standard engineering techniques. The finite element method operates on the assumption that any continuous function over a global domain can be approximated by a series of functions operating over a finite number of small dub-domains. The series of functions are piecewise, continuous and will approach the exact solution as the number of sub-domains approaches infinity.
Finite Element Analysis. A process of selecting the optimum combination of materials in a composite based on software analysis.
Finite Elements Analysis. A multi-dimensional computer simulation technique for the prediction of material behaviour.
( Finite element analysis) A mathematical method for analyzing stress. FEA is used in product-design software to conduct graphical on-screen analysis of a model's reactions under various load conditions.
Functional Economic Analysis. An analytical technique for assessing the value added at various stages or functions in a process. Most relevant in manufacturing industries, where such increments in value can be readily measured.
Finite Element Analysis. A computerized numerical analysis technique used for solving differential equations to primarily solved mechanical engineering problems relating to stress analysis.
