Finite element analysis (FEA) uses a computerised model to enable a material or model to be artificially stressed or analysed for specific material properties. FEA has been used in industry but is now being used more frequently in medicine and dentistry. It enables the design of new products and also allows for product refinement. This process makes it possible to verify a proposed design prior to what may be an expensive manufacturing process. It may also be able to determine why an existing product design has failed.
