Finite Element Analysis Exercise

In this example we will look at the different ways we can use FEA to analyze designs. We will first run FEA on an initial design to see the results. We will then run an analysis on the optimized results of the same model. This will demosntrate how we can compare the results of initial design with those of an optimizaed design.
