Finite Element Analysis 101 - Episode 206

One of the many tools in the engineering tool belt, Finite Element Analysis (or FEA)is the process of simulating the behavior of a part or assembly under given conditions so that it can be assessed using the Finite Element Method (FEM). That doesn't clear things up for you? How about this: FEA breaks 3D CAD models into tiny parts to understand if they are going to break. Like if Luke sits on a chair after not being on a diet, will he weigh too much for it to hold? That's FEA!! Join us to understand why engineers rely on FEA, the part it played in getting us to the moon, and more!
