8.1 Before You Run Your Model
In this section we'll discuss what a well-defined finite element model is and some things you may need to check before you run your model in FEBio.
A well-defined finite element model contains a finite element mesh, a valid material and properly defined boundary and contact conditions in order to define a unique solution to the problem under study. We will look at each of these requirements in more detail in the following sections.
