Finite Element Analysis

Hi-Tech delivers Finite Element Analysis (FEA) services to assist you in resolving structural and thermal analysis challenges with accurate, timely and cost-effective solutions.

Product Designing with Finite Element Analysis Boosts Development Process

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is an integral part of product development processes today. It has enabled engineers and designers to quickly evaluate the product design, determine stresses, deformation, useful life and failure characteristics within few numerical iterations.

Improved Finite Element Simulations to Expedite Product Development

Sheet metal parts are increasingly being developed by simulating the deformation process, in order to optimize the development time and improve the design quality. These simulations are often compared with modern optical measuring methods working on the principle of image processing to provide detailed information on 3D surface geometry, deformation as well as strain on formed sheet metal components.

How Finite Element Analysis is Helping Design the Future

FEA holds a promising future for product engineering design, and is being increasingly refined to improve the solver capabilities in predicting the behavior more accurately. With further developments in High Performance Computing (HPC), future finite element solvers are expected to become more reliable and eliminate the use of physical tests at many levels.

Simulating Dynamic Response of a Structure with Fasteners in FEA

It is often difficult to simulate the dynamic response of structure consisting of number of screws or bolts, since it is expensive to represent every single hardware items in the simulation. It not only consumes time in setting up the simulation, but also eats up the computational time significantly. How then a design engineer can get the best answer from finite element analysis with less number of iterations?

Adopt Shell Mesh Approach for Thin Walled Parts FEA for Speed and Accuracy

It is pretty much common to find companies trusting on solid-mesh simulations even when the geometry is thin-walled, like in the case of sheet metal or plastic parts. The common reason why analysts avoid using shell mesh for such cases is due to a common misconception that it will take too much time. Moreover, analysts also think that they do not require capturing the physics in detail, and hence ignore the rules of meshing thin walled parts

20 Reasons to Use Finite Element Analysis for Product Design & Development

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) has brought numerous opportunities for product design engineers and manufacturers, and is now an integral part of product development process in industries like automotive, biomedical, aerospace, industrial equipment and heavy engineering. It fundamentally consists of three main phases: pre-processing, solution and post processing.

Use Shell Elements for Finite Element Analysis of Thin-Walled Parts

Performing finite element analyses using shell elements for thin-walled parts is often the best approach to save computational time. However, it is equally important to have good knowledge and experience with using shell elements to avoid erratic results from simulation. This is necessary because stresses in shell elements are captured differently as compared to solid ones.

Dealing with Accuracy in FEA Results for Safety and Reliability

Within the engineering community today, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is widely considered as a tool to solve complex engineering problems. This is true to some extent, since FEA has allowed engineers to visualize complex physics within the product in matter of few hours, without relying on time consuming physical test trials.

Structural Analysis of Bridges Using FEA, a Sophisticated Approach

A trend of constructing sky scrapers and grandiose bridges has become a measure to determine how technologically advanced the construction firm is. These firms constantly engage in erecting immense structures and bridges across large water mass, as a consequence to increase in population density and frequent long distance commutation.

Need of 3D CAD models and FEA for Mechanical Components Prior to Fabrication

Rendered 3D CAD models which are well analyzed by FEA methods are must needed to enhance the output of products and study its performance and failure.

Automated traditional FEA approach through Parameter based optimization for automotive components

Design optimization essentially aims at improving product efficiency while making optimal utilization of resources. However, the optimization process is often time-consuming, especially while dealing with large data sets. Design engineers often face it challenging in delivering results due to the time utilized in analyzing large data sets. Analyzing and optimizing each data set manually, a common practice in iterative optimization approach consumes time in leaps.
