Finite Element Modeling/Analysis

Written by: 3M | Published: 11/20

Finite element modeling is a tool engineers use in designing products across every industry. An engineer will create a 3-D rendering of an assembly with the finite element software and define each material of interest. In order to run simulations to predict performance, the 3-D model defines the parts’ geometries, their relation to one another, and their material properties. These properties are well defined for metals, plastics, and other standard engineering materials.
