Yet, recent advancements in scanning and computing technologies have opened a whole new set of opportunities in biomedical engineering field.

Strengthening Automobile Chassis Using Finite Element Analysis

A chassis provides the much needed support to the vehicle body, and bears number of loads in order make sure that they do not get transmitted inside the cabin. In general, the chassis has to accommodate five loading conditions that include bending, torsion, combined bending and torsion, lateral and fore & aft loading.

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.

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.

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.

CFD Simulation for Exhaust Gas Dispersion to Control Industrial Emissions

Exhaust gas streams emitting from industrial process plants consist of harmful pollutants, which are carried away for sufficiently large distances from source. The control of these pollutants dispersion is mandatory to avoid spreading of toxic gases into urban areas nearer to plant locations.

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.

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.

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.

Cutting Development Time for Pumps through Simulation Techniques

From simple household uses to high-end industrial applications, pumps remain a preliminary device make our lives easier. 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.

Verifying Computer Simulations to Ensure Transparency and Reliability

Computer simulations are applied everywhere in engineering and it has placed a huge amount of burden on top level managers responsible for taking critical designs. Prior to the simulation era, making engineering decisions were simply based on few physical measurements, some handful of experimental data and engineering drawings.
