Finite Elements Calculation is the standard tool for simulation of the solid state. The calculation area is divided into a discretionary number of elements. These elements are “finitely” and not infinitely small. Dividing the area into a defined set of elements of finite size, which can be described using a finite number of parameters, gave the method its name: "Finite Element Method".

In the meantime, the method is finding application in all fields of technology, in the automotive industry for instance for small parts, engine and chassis as well as vehicle body calculation including crash behavior.

The use of Finite Elements Calculation in practice began in the 1950s with a structure calculation of aircraft wings in the aerospace industry and very soon also in the automotive industry.
