### Finite Element Analysis By Hand – The 1D Bar Problem

The behavior of any physical system can be defined mathematically. Solving these mathematical equations allows for the analysis of the system’s behavior. Depending on the complexity of the equation, finding solutions directly may not be straightforward. Finite element analysis is an approximation technique to transform the mathematical representation of a physical system into a set

### What Is Friction? – And How Do We Account For It In FEA?

Friction is an important concept taught in every introductory physics class. However, it is commonly ignored or overlooked when solving physics problems or when performing FEA. In this blog, we will go through what friction is and how we can utilize it in FEA. What Exactly Is Friction? Friction is the resistance encountered when objects

### Phase Diagrams In Materials Science – What Are They And Why Do They Matter?

Phase diagrams are essentially maps that illustrate the conditions under which different phases (solid, liquid, gas) of a substance coexist at equilibrium. They serve as valuable tools for scientists and engineers across various fields, including chemistry, physics, materials science and chemical engineering, enabling prediction of the states of matter under different conditions of temperature and
