Nodes and Elements are the very backbones of Finite Element Analysis. You will use them in every analysis you will perform in FEA, so learning about them seems like a good idea! So, what are Nodes and Elements in Finite Element Analysis? In FEA, you divide your model into small pieces. Those are called Finite Elements [...]

FEA analysis won’t run? Fix it with this #FEAchecklist!

It's time for the second part of the #FEAchecklist! Last time we were checking stuff before starting an analysis. Now, let's wonder what to check if you see analysis errors when your analysis fails to run. I can honestly say I'm kind of an expert here... I'm pretty certain I've made most of the possible [...]

Finite Element Analysis workflow

When I first started working with Finite Element Analysis (FEA) I had a huge problem in understanding what to do. I had a basic engineering knowledge but I simply did not understand what was the order of the steps. Suddenly the software had many "modules" and each was screaming at me that some data is [...]
