Finite Element Analysis (FEA) & Simulation Software


The Autodesk Simulation family of products delivers a comprehensive set of finite element analysis and simulation software tools that are easy to integrate into each phase of the product development process. From mechanical stress, vibration, and motion to computational fluid dynamics, plastic injection molding, and multiphysics, finite element analysis and simulation software from Autodesk provides a fast, accurate, and innovative approach to solving your most challenging design problems.

Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerized method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow, and other physical effects. Finite element analysis shows whether a product will break, wear out, or work the way it was designed. It is called analysis, but in the product development process, it is used to predict what is going to happen when the product is used.

FEA works by breaking down a real object into a large number (thousands to hundreds of thousands) of finite elements, such as little cubes. Mathematical equations help predict the behavior of each element. A computer then adds up all the individual behaviors to predict the behavior of the actual object.

Finite element analysis helps predict the behavior of products affected by many physical effects, including:

  • Mechanical stress
  • Mechanical vibration
  • Fatigue
  • Motion
  • Heat transfer
  • Fluid flow
  • Electrostatics
  • Plastic injection molding

The future of making things with simulation allows you to deliver better designs more quickly, and make great products with Autodesk Simulation software. Predict product behavior, test innovative concepts, and optimize designs early in the design and engineering process. Validate products to better understand the implications of your design choices—before manufacturing.
