The jurisdictions’ stated purpose is to ensure the safety of the design. In practical terms, this means code compliance. Traditionally, some of the driving motivations for FEA could be: reducing prototyping costs, shortening the time-to production, and ultimately resolving complex design challenges. However, in the present case, the focus is product safety by ensuring code compliance and it can be quite baffling for experienced finite element analysts to have their
