Finite Element Method (FEM) refers mostly to complex mathematical procedures used in your favorite solver. Think about it like a theory manual, lots of equations and mathematics. Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is usually used in the context of applying FEM to solve real engineering problems. The finite element method is a widely used method for numerically solving differential equations arising in engineering and mathematical modeling. Typical problem areas of interest include the traditional fields of structural analysis, heat transfer, fluid flow, mass transport, and electromagnetic potential.
