Big Data analyzes correlations from huge raw data and predicts outcomes. It has great impacts on scientific discoveries and value creation. High Performance Computing (HPC) uses parallel processing and advanced programs or software packages to complete complicated jobs quickly. Finite Element Method (FEM) is very powerful in scientific computation and engineering analysis. It has created huge values in almost every area of engineering. In a lot of applications, Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
