What is Finite Element Analysis (FEA)?

Nowadays, it is a numerical method which can be used effectively to solve complex engineering problems. This method, which was developed for the first time stress analysis of airplanes in 1956, was successfully used in the solution of applied sciences and engineering problems in the following decade. Depending on the finite element method, it consists of sub-regions called simple and multiple finite elements with a solution zone. Mathematically, systems are known as numerical analysis with specific material properties and applicable boundary conditions. Stress-Strain, ie structural analysis or stress analysis, helps to determine the safety coefficients of the existing system and to optimize the material, cost, production time and strength values ​​in the manufacturing processes. Structural analysis, heat transfer analysis, strength analysis are evaluated in this context.
