Bench Marking of FEA Software Packages in 2D and 3D

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) breaks object components into numerical finite elements and calculate their performance individually. As long as the finite element is small enough, the performance of the entire part can be simply obtained by adding up all the performances of finite elements. However, the giant number of finite elements in 3D models makes processing time too long, which reduces efficiency and adds costs. Therefore, in this project I will simplify 3D model into beam element (2D beams representing parts in 3D space to create structure). This will give us an estimation of the actual performance but save lots of processing time.
