The solution has been created, but now the all-important question arises: Are the results useful or are they just garbage? While the graphs and images may be pretty, what do they mean? Do they have realistic proportions?
Unfortunately, for such a complex geometry, this is no analytic way to check our results. Instead, we will have to check ourselves with some logical questions:
These are all questions that need to be thought of and answered when looking over the results of our FEA model. This step requires a great amount of effort and often will require refinements as well as trial and error to complete. For our sanity, though, this tutorial has been based around a model that has been tried, tested and refined for accuracy, leading to many of the steps we have already completed.
