Finite Element Method (FEM)

 
 
A means to approximate partial differential equation (PDE) discretizations (discrete counterparts transferred – with some amount of error – from continuous functions, models, variables and equations) with numerical model equations in order to break down large problems into simpler finite elements that can be solved via numerical methods. Studying a phenomenon with FEM is known as finite element analysis (FEA).
