French term or phrase: le code de calcul de structure par éléments finis
Structural engineering. This part of my text sets out a list of the means which are available to a project team when developing a new product (industrial fittings).

I would like help with understanding what is meant by "éléments finis".

Explanation:
The finite element method is a computational method in which a structure is divided into a number of elements, forming a mesh-like pattern.The program computes stress and strain interactively in each element. The finer the pattern, the more accurate the analysis.
