Welcome to FEA Zürich (FEZ), a virtual hub to share finite element analysis workflows for biomechanics research. FEZ is a collaboration between the Palaeontological Institute and Museum (PIM) and the Institute of Evolutionary Medicine (IEM). FEZ was founded by Dr. Eva Herbst, Dr. Nicole Webb, and Dylan Bastiaans to unite researchers using FEA to answer biological questions. The goal of this website is to form a finite element analysis community across various institutions and disciplines to increase access to this modeling methodology.
