Finite element analysis, or FEA for short, is a computer-run numerical technique used to simulate how product designs react to different stresses or loads

3D models are drawn in CAD (Computer Aided Design) software, a mesh of nodes (finite elements) is formed around the model geometry, and loads and constraints are applied.

The FEA software then shows how the design reacts, allowing for optimization of the geometry and materials used. Used in combination with VectorLam laminate analysis software, Vectorply FEA provides the most comprehensive value-added service in the composites industry today.
