A simple geometric shape defined by a specific number of nodes in a specific order. Elements are dependent on all the nodes defining their shape; if any node is deleted, the element is also deleted. Elements are the building blocks of finite element models. Elements can be one of three types: linear or one-dimensional, plate or two-dimensional, or solid or three-dimensional.
