Finite Element Analysis
Finite element analysis is a service provided by EASL to offer clients quick, reliable results to complex problems. EASL are experts with this method, frequently providing internal and external training courses on related software such as ABAQUS.
Whether it’s stress, thermal, seismic or strains on materials, Finite Element Modelling allows a solution that is more time efficient and economical than alternative experiments and calculations.
What is FEA?
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a computerized numerical method used to solve complex practical problems. These can range from predicting how a structure reacts to an applied force, vibration, heat, fluid flow to a multitude of other physical effects. FEA reaches an approximate solution to any complex engineering problem by discretization of the geometry into manageable or finite elements which can be used to solve mechanical, thermal, magnetic or potential difference equations.
Benefits of FEA include:
- The ability to handle complex geometry and loading conditions.
- Its application to areas such as structural, dynamics and heat transfer analysis.
- Safe simulation of potentially dangerous environments and failure modes impractical to test.
- The ability to predict failure of real life structures subjected to a wide range of loading conditions.
- Low cost solutions and rapid evaluation time for most applications.
