Objects of Study

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Structure Finite Element Analysis

  • Linear & Nonlinear analysis 1
    • Geometric (large displacements, deflections or strains)
    • Material (plasticity, thermo-plasticity, creep, viscoelasticity, hyperelasticity, mixed U-P formulation, etc.)
    • Contact (friction, gear-tooth contacts, threaded
      connections, impact bodies, etc.)
  • Static & Dynamic analysis 2
    • Handling
    • Modal analysis
    • Vibration analysis
    • Harmonic response analysis
    • Spectrum response analysis
  • Fatigue & Fracture analysis 3

Thermal Stress Finite Element Analysis

  • Conduction, Convection & Radiation analysis
  • Steady State & Transient analysis 4
  • Phase Change Analysis

Electromagnetics Finite Element Analysis

  • Low Frequency & High Frequency Stress analysis
  • Electromagnetic & Electrostatic analysis
  • High Frequency Stress Analysis

1. Calculations based on linear/nonlinear correlation between loads and reaction.

2. Static analysis assumes constant loads and ignores speed and acceleration. While
dynamic analysis consider inertia and damping.

3. Fatigue & fracture analysis determines durability of a product predicting its lifetime as a response to repeated applications of forces.

4. Steady state analysis examine thermal conditions of the body in a state of thermal equilibrium. While transient analysis takes into consideration not only thermal conductivity, but also density and specific heat to estimate time necessary for the body to reach this state.
