Hi,

The finite element analysis (FEA) or finite element method (FEM) is a numerical technique for finding approximate solutions for partial differential equations. It subdivides a large problem into smaller, simpler parts that are called finite elements. Dividing the domain of the problem into a collection of sub domains, with each sub domain represented by a set of element equations to the original problem, followed by systematically recombining all sets of element equations into a global system of equations for the final calculation. Hence we get a calculation and a numerical solution for problem.

Hey,
I am Kamlesh
Finite element analysis is method of analyzing large part because in this method the part is divided into smaller part than easy to calculate after recombining all element we get a proper and accurate result.

Thank you
