Engineering problems with Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

With finite element analysis or FEA services, you can easily find an apt solution for any complex engineering problem by subdividing your problem into small and manageable finite elements. FEA services involve the use of finite elements to successfully reduce the complex differential equations of a structure to a set of easily solvable linear equations.[/fusion_text][fusion_text]In short, finite element analysis can be described as an engineering technique that is used to predict the response of structures and materials to applied loads such as temperature, force, displacements and vibration. Before you develop a design, you can model it, evaluate its performance and address failure points with FEA services.

Engineering problems with Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Today, almost every engineering discipline requires finite element analysis. Industries like manufacturing, plastics, electronics, energy, geotechnical aerospace, automotive, biomedical and chemicals regularly use FEA services. Apart from playing an integral role in evaluating classical static structural problems, FEA is also widely used in radiation problems, mass transport, dynamics and heat transfer amongst others.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a powerful numerical method used to solve engineering problems by simulating the behavior of structures or systems under various conditions. Here's a general approach to solving engineering problems with FEA:

  1. Problem Identification: Clearly define the engineering problem you want to solve. Identify the objectives, constraints, and desired outcomes of the analysis. Determine the specific components or systems that need to be analyzed using FEA.
  2. Geometry and Mesh Generation: Create a digital model of the structure or system using CAD software or FEA-specific pre-processing tools. Define the geometry, including dimensions, shapes, and boundaries. Divide the model into smaller elements and create a mesh, ensuring appropriate element size and quality.
  3. Material Properties and Boundary Conditions: Assign material properties to the elements, including properties such as elasticity, density, thermal conductivity, and other relevant parameters. Apply appropriate boundary conditions, such as fixed supports, loads, displacements, or thermal conditions, based on the physical behavior of the system.
  4. Element Selection and Analysis Type: Choose suitable finite elements based on the problem type, such as truss, beam, shell, or solid elements. Select the appropriate analysis type, such as static, dynamic, thermal, or nonlinear analysis, based on the nature of the problem and the behavior of the structure.
  5. Solver Configuration: Set up the solver parameters, including convergence criteria, time steps, and solution options. Specify any additional assumptions, simplifications, or idealizations required for the analysis.
  6. Solve and Post-Processing: Run the analysis using the FEA software. The software will calculate the response of the structure or system based on the applied loads, boundary conditions, and material properties. Once the analysis is complete, examine the results to understand the behavior of the structure, including stress, strain, displacement, temperature distribution, or other relevant output parameters.
  7. Interpretation and Validation: Analyze and interpret the results in relation to the problem objectives. Validate the results by comparing them to theoretical calculations, experimental data, or industry standards. Assess the accuracy, reliability, and limitations of the FEA analysis.
  8. Optimization and Design Iteration: If the analysis reveals areas of concern or performance gaps, consider design iterations or optimizations to improve the structure's performance. Modify the geometry, material properties, or boundary conditions as needed and repeat the FEA analysis to evaluate the effects of the changes.
  9. Documentation and Reporting: Document the analysis process, including the problem statement, assumptions, modeling details, input parameters, results, and conclusions. Prepare a comprehensive report that summarizes the analysis methodology, findings, and recommendations.
