The finite element method provides a powerful procedure to mathematically model physical phenomena. The technique is numerically formulated and is effectively used on a broad range of computers. The method has increased in both popularity and functionality with the development of user friendly pre- and post-processing software. Pre-processing software is used to create the model, generate an appropriate finite element grid, apply the appropriate boundary conditions, and view the total model. Post-processing provides visualization of the computed results
