Stress-Strain Analysis by the Finite Element Method

This Demonstration simulates stress-strain results in materials as derived by the finite element method. Rectangles or triangles show the segmentation of the object, where blue segments are much stronger than green segments.
Red arrows show the distribution of external forces, while red points show where the object is pinned down.
