Finite Element Analysis (FEA) can significantly improve structural/component designs.  By simulating how a product will react to real-world forces (vibration, heat, fluid flow, and other physical effects) the use of FEA improves designs to optimize them for real-world applications.

In loadings, complicated geometries, and material properties where analytical solutions cannot be obtained, FEA helps to find potential failure points before production starts. By simulating the stresses that a structure or component will encounter, designs can be optimized to reduce weight, identify appropriate materials and reduce costs without compromising integrity.

Ten ways to utilize FEA:

1.  Dynamic stress & vibration of structures
2.  Static stress and strain prediction for structures
3.  Dynamic stress & vibration of piping and compressor piping systems
4.  Thermally-induced stress in gas turbine exhaust ducts
5.  Heat transfer
6.  Optimize design of failing mechanical components
7.  Strain measurement of static loads
8.  Strain measurement of dynamically loaded components including piping systems, exhaust stacks, and blades of centrifugal compressors
9.  Torsional & bending strains in rotating shafts
10.  Residual stress prediction on components such as castings

When you utilize Finite Element Analysis in your design you save yourself potential headaches and find the weaknesses in a design before it goes to production.  This creates a safer product, improves productivity, and saves you money.  Seifert Technologies – Engineering Division has years of experience using the latest software to analyze any component of your design.  Let us help you be more productive today.
