Finite Element Analysis (FEA) can be used with traditional tests to analyze the strength of the structures and complex systems, determine the behavior of components, and accurately predict how products will react to low structural and thermal loads. FEA is a computer simulation based on the finite element method.
Vista Engineering’s finite element analysis can assist product development, simulations of load conditions, design optimization, predicting lifetime use, fitness for duty, and failure analysis. Using sophisticated modeling software to predict the behavior of the product, we will help you save time and material required for traditional tests and increase the confidence in the performance test.
The finite element method (FEM) is the preferred method for solving engineering problems and mathematical models. It originated from the need to solve complex linear and nonlinear structural analysis problems in aeronautical, mechanical, and civil engineering.
FEA investigates changes in the design for weight, cost, manufacturing, performance, or bench marking reasons, and can provide confidence in the designs before undertaking costly regimes and potentially destructive tests. It is beneficial for any project that requires dynamics analysis, strength, or durability. Using sophisticated modeling software, FEA simulates interaction and movement between the parts in a system given a specific set of parameters.
