Finite Element Analysis Services - Thermal, Stress, Vibration, Fatigue +

Finite Element Analysis

Performing finite element analysis (thermal, stress, vibration & fatigue +) to Codes including API, AWS and ASME – ensuring component structural integrity, performance and reliability.

The benefits of finite element analysis (FEA) include determining a structure’s response to mechanical, vibratory and other loads, thus solving design challenges without arduous manual iterations or prototyping – as well as optimizing designs for weight and fabrication/ cost savings.
