How to create a good quality FEM model?

By | Uncategorized | 3 Comments

The finite element method (FEM) is increasingly used for structural calculations. For the most part, FEM is used to calculate structural deformation, stress, fatigue life, vibration, or temperature. The manufacturing of a product may be simulated, and one can calculate the acoustics, crash behaviour, and many other disciplines. The FEM model answers questions like “will the product satisfy the design requirements?”,”will the component fail?” or later “why did it fail?”.
