Finite element analysis (FEA) is a mathematical representation of a physical system comprising a part/assembly, material properties, and boundary conditions. In several situations, simple hand calculations cannot approximate product behavior in the real world.

Meshing is one of the most critical steps in performing an accurate simulation using FEA. A mesh comprises elements containing nodes (coordinate locations in space that can vary by element type) that represent the shape of the geometry. An FEA solver cannot easily work with irregular shapes, but it is much happier with shapes that have good aspect ratios. Meshing is the process of turning geometrical entities into discretized volumes called “elements.”
