Finite Element Analysis

Increasingly stricter industry standards and a growing demand for high-performance and durable products lead to a considerable increase in the complexity of the design process. The competitiveness of many companies is under great pressure due to global competition. This shifts the focus to innovative and smart design with a minimal material, production and energy cost. Analysis tools like Finite Element Analysis play a key role in staying ahead of competition.

Accurate analysis with the Finite Element Method

The Finite Element Method permits to accurately analyse and predict the mechanical behaviour of structures. Potential problems can already be identified and solved very early in the design phase, avoiding expensive redesign or the need for executing many laboratory tests. A numerical analysis extends the understanding and the knowledge of the performance and durability of your designs and offer you the confidence needed to successfully market your products.

Calculate complex models with FEA

Finite Element Analyses does not only allow for evaluating parts with a complex geometry or with a non-linear material behaviour, but also problems involving diverse and unpredictable loading. As an example, when a structure is subject to dynamic loads, not only the magnitude of the load is of importance, but even so the loading frequency, which can lead to resonance and eventually to a fatal collapse of the structure.
