Failures are still a classic application of FEM and an area in which Merkle & Partner has decades of experience.
If components fail within the promised lifetime, high costs are incurred due to the replacement of the component itself, consequential damages, as well as loss of production or recall actions. A large number of these damages would have been detectable by early use of numerical simulations in the design or construction phase. For this reason, the prevention of the damage is to be preferred according to the saying "prevention is better than cure".
