This paper describes the extraction and description of features from finite element (FE) models. Feature description of the physical system can aid in assimilation of such descriptions of behavior and isolate specific features for re-design and optimization. Use of domain specific terminology and a natural language interface can enable users to query the data base in a qualitative manner using fuzzy descriptions. A feature description structure is developed to generate succinct descriptions of the features of the physical system. In combination with information compression schema and description interpreters for shape, signal and images, the facility can provide succinct and detailed descriptions of behavior. Feature description at the FE modeling level would enable the bridging of the process of initial design, solid-modeling and FE analysis. This paper introduces the environment and some details of the feature description process.
