Viewpoint: Yes, Finite Element Studies Have Limited Usefulness Because They Produce Idealized Data That May Be Useful for Theoretical Analysis but Could Produce Serious Errors in Real-World Machines or Structures.

The Finite Element Method in Action

The finite element method has its roots in engineering developments from around the turn of the nineteenth century. During that era, it first became common for bridge-builders and other engineers to apply the theory of structures, or the idea that a larger structure is created by fitting together a number of smaller structural elements. Today, of course, this concept seems self-evident, a concept as simple as assembling interlocking Lego blocks to form a model skyscraper, but at the time it was revolutionary. Of particular significance was the realization that, if the structural characteristics of each element could be known...
