Imagine you are working on a product that is worth several thousands of Dollar and when the prototype slides out of your hand for the first time, it breaks in part when it crashes to the ground. That is certainly not a well designed product yet but it was impossible for you to know that it would break when hitting the ground. The best way to avoid something like this from happening is simulating the prototype virtually! The Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is the simulation of any given physical phenomenon using the numerical technique called Finite Element Method (FEM). You and other engineers can use it to reduce the number of physical prototypes and experiments and optimize components in their design phase to develop better products, faster.
