10 Mistakes that Makes You Pay More for Finite Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is an essential aspect of product design in most industry sectors. In spite FEA being so important manufacturers don’t focus on it much or sometimes ignore it. And ultimately end up with inefficient product design and later tend to pay more for FEA analysis and product design optimization. Have a look at top ten mistakes that makes you pay more for FEA.

Finite Element Analysis for Plastics and Rubber Components

The use of linear analysis is limited for materials that do not undergo large deformations and retain their original shape and size, once the loads are removed. However, in practicality, every material available in nature possesses some sort of non-linear behavior. As such, it is very much obvious to choose non-linear analysis to ensure accuracy in results.

Outsourcing: A Profitable Decision for the Automotive Industry

The continuously growing demands from the developing regions of the globe and a pressing need to develop economical automobiles are keeping manufacturers busy in seeking a profitable position in the market.

How Computer Aided Engineering Can Help in Succeeding Unconventional Product Designs?

Products are getting smarter every day, and are becoming more personalized and largely different from conventional designs. The modern engineering community as such has to rely on new set of design and development tools against the conventional ones.

Finite Element Based Structural Analysis to Build Better Offshore Tower Systems

The development of offshore structures has been phenomenal over the last few decades. The key driver for such development is primarily due to the constant urge to explore deep waters due to the ever-increasing oil demands. The continuous rise in the need of deep water developments and exploitation of shallow water reserves has invoked a new range of offshore structures.

Establishing Proactive Maintenance Schedules Using Finite Element Analysis

Any engineered product’s success rate hugely depends on the amount of useful life it delivers. As conventional designs continue evolving for the sake of improving performance, it has become mandatory for design engineers to adopt new ways to determine and increase product life, while downsizing and reducing the development cost.

How Simulation Can Improve the Reliability of Consumer Electronics?

Early product failures turn very much costly for manufacturers, resulting in a substantial loss in revenue, value and customer’s trust towards the brand. It is however very much common for many products to fail prematurely, since engineers are consistently forced to improve the performance, reduce cost and improve the time to market. In a pursuit to achieve these requirements, the product quality get affected somewhere.

Identifying and Reducing Stresses in Pressure Vessels

Pressure vessels are part of common equipment utilized in plants to store liquids and gases under high pressure. It is certain that pressurized fluids will develop stresses in the vessel, which when exceeds failure limits, will lead to hazardous incidents and fatalities.

CFD Simulations to Save Lives

The potential of CFD simulations is increasingly being exploited in many modern engineering fields. However, the use of CFD techniques is more restricted to manufacturing domains, to study and optimize the performance of equipments and systems involving fluid flows. Yet, recent advancements in scanning and computing technologies have opened a whole new set of opportunities in biomedical engineering field.

Let's discuss about exhaust gas streams emitting from industrial process plants consist of harmful pollutants, which are carried away for sufficiently large.

Using Shell Elements for Your FEA Simulation

The results of finite element analysis hugely depend on the type of element used to convert the geometry into smaller elements. While in most 3D simulations, solid elements are required, it is found that these elements do not give desired results for thin and slender structures.

The Future of Engineering Simulation Is in Cloud

Computer aided engineering has revolutionized product design process and has provided manufacturers the benefits of cost saving and bring products to the market faster. It is hard to imagine a product development process today that does not undergo a simulation test.

Validate Product Designs from Inception to Save Time and Money

As a product designer, engineer or a manufacturer, we know the importance of validating the idea of product design prior to plan a full-fledged production. Validation and verification is a green signal for the design that is ready to be mass produced with all the quality checks done to ensure its safety and reliability.

Necessitating the Use of Simulation Tools for New Product Testing and Development

New product in the market is often most crucial for manufacturers, especially in a cut-throat competitive scenario. According to a recent research study from Aberdeen Group, almost 37% of total revenues are generated from new products, making it extremely important to launch the products on time with the required quality to gain maximum profitability and acceptance rate from the customers.

Using CFD to Improve Industrial Systems Involving Flow through Porous Media

Many industrial applications involve fluid flow through porous media that directly affects their performance. Filters, packed beds and perforated plates are some of the examples of porous media through which fluid flow occurs. While different phenomena and multiple fluid phases exist, it is extremely complex to determine the efficiency of the media through physical experimentation.

It’s nearly impossible develop many equipments and devices that rely on pressurized fluid streams without utilizing pumping systems. Because of its highly important role, it is evident to place a firm focus on its design for a particular application.

How Trustworthy Are the Results Obtained Through FEA?

Finite element analysis has always been used as a third dimension in product testing apart from experimental and analytical tests. The reason why FEA alone is not employed as a standard testing tool is primarily because it is an approximation of the partial differential equations and often consists of residuals that always keep the results from being 100% accurate.
