StageTHREEtimelinePut simply a FEA model represents all surfaces and solids that form the structure to be analysed. These surfaces and solid are then broken down into many smaller parts. The material properties, loads and displacement constraints are then added into the model. The software then analyses the entire structural problem and creates stress, strain and displacement results for every small element within the model.
