Bringing a competitive new product to market is hard. Engineers have to create something the world has never seen before, and they have to be absolutely sure that it will work 100% of the time.
That’s a scary proposition.
How do you effectively manage this risk? Failure to do so will have serious consequences: production delays, lost contracts, failure in the field, expensive recalls, reputational damage; the list goes on.
We refer to simulation by many different names — CAE, FEA, CFD, numerical analysis, virtual testing, or prototyping — but it all means one thing: better engineering decision-making through computer prediction.
"Does it pass the test?” GoEngineer can assemble the model, design the simulation, and give you the answer. Compare your options, validate your ideas, and hit your targets with confidence.
Virtual prototyping using reliable, true-to-life CAE keeps engineers and companies on the right track when designing complex and interconnected products in increasingly competitive markets.
Integrated design & development services. From research to production, GoEngineer's designers and engineers work side-by-side using the latest analysis and optimization tools to efficiently develop parts to specification.

We Do Front End Engineering Design (FEED)
Cost-effective product development programs rely upon FEED to minimize total expenditures. Although the initial investment is typically higher (more up-front engineering), the process generally leads to reduced cost of product development and final products.

- FMEA/DVP&R support
Accuracy is essential to effective CAE, so we’ve made physical-to-virtual test correlation and material characterization two of our most practiced skills.
Complex materials can be tricky for FEA, especially under extreme loading or environmental conditions or in composites. Clever modeling, sound data interpretation, and user subroutines can be used to reproduce nonlinear and situationally dependent behavior, like failure and degradation, complex layering, variable properties, etc.
Many of our projects, especially those involving nonlinear dynamics, start with a physical test video. With the appropriate material properties, assembly connections and constraints, and an intelligent approach to model simplification, true-to-life simulation behavior is very achievable. From there, new design and analysis can be pursued with confidence.
Creating a simulation that is complex, accurate, and efficient requires skill and experience. If the predictive model you require seems out of reach, GoEngineer can help. As consultants, we routinely use CAE software in creative ways to go beyond common analyses.
Our expertise in a wide range of FEA and CFD tools can become your advantage. We can develop and train your analysis team on software and modeling methodologies that will lead to better engineering decision making.
