  • Static Analysis

  • Quality stress and displacement analysis requires excellent attention to detail, high-density FEA models, accurate materials and contact behavior, and an experienced Abaqus analyst to set it all up to converge well.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Linear & non-linear
    - Stress, strain, deformation
    - Buckling
    - Contact & sealing
    - Material fracture & hyperelasticity
  • Ideal for:
    - Basic or in-depth understanding of load capacity and stiffness.
    - High detail and accuracy in stress and contact behavior.
  • Explicit Dynamic Analysis

  • When high-speed and chaotic events exceed the capabilities of static analysis, an explicit solver with sufficient computing resources can provide an answer to even the largest problems.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Quasi-static
    - Impact & drop
    - Crash (including full-vehicle)
    - Ballistic & mechanical shock
  • Ideal for:
    - Predicting assembly and material behavior in high-energy, transient events.
    - Efficiently analyzing scenarios involving large deformation, unconstrained bodies, and/or complex interactions.

    Vibration Analysis

  • Vibration is a critical part of structural and acoustic analyses. The more advanced procedures may require test data or high-performance computing (HPC), and results may be used for further downstream simulation.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Modal (normal modes – eigenvalue extraction)
    - Random vibration
    - Frequency response
    - Steady-state dynamics
    - Acoustics
  • Ideal for:
    - Understanding response to various types of excitation for structural, acoustic, comfort, and other concerns.
  • Trust experienced FEA consultants to handle complicated thermal analysis methodologies

    Thermal Analysis

  • Temperature effects are of huge concern to mechanical and electromagnetic analysts. Heat’s effects on materials and transfer through the system is a complex multiphysics problem, potentially requiring capability in multiple software solutions.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Steady-state & transient
    - Coupled thermal-stress analysis
    - Heat transfer
    - Coupled structures, fluids, and electromagnetics
  • Ideal for:
    - True understanding of operational conditions when temperature effects are significant.
  • Fatigue analysis services can save you from costly and unanticipated field failures

    Durability Analysis

  • Long-term durability of products is enormously important to human safety and to company reputation. Effective analysis requires sophisticated tools to handle sensitive material models in complex and cumulative loading scenarios.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Life cycle prediction
    - Fatigue & creep damage
    - Safety factors
    - Base material, weld, or spot joint fatigue
    - Crack prediction
  • Ideal for:
    - Ensuring long-term durability in all intended operational conditions, especially in lightweight design and materials.
  • Multibody Dynamics

  • Multibody dynamics is essential for understanding assembly behavior and loading in motion, verifying clearances, providing loads for downstream analysis, and more.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Kinematic/dynamic motion studies
    - Flexible body interface with Abaqus
    - Vehicle dynamics & durability
    - Realtime ADAS simulation
  • Ideal for:
    - Ensuring assembly motion is viable as intended.
    - Providing input data for structural FEA.
  • Manufacturing Analysis

  • Simulation can be used on more than just product performance. When used on manufacturing processes, there's the opportunity to eliminate extremely costly retool and redesign efforts.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Metal forming
    - Plastic injection molding (fill, pack, warp)
  • Ideal for:
    - Ensuring product manufacturing will succeed before tooling.
  • Multiphysics

  • Accurate product performance prediction, in many cases, must account for multiple kinds of physics. Pulling that off in FEA may require advanced skills, multiple solutions and workflows, and familiarity with the quirks of putting it all together.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Coupled eulerian-lagrangian
    - Hydrostatic-fluid-mechanical
    - Fluid-structure interaction
    - Piezoelectric
    - Structural acoustics
  • Ideal for:
    - True understanding of operating conditions when fluids, structures, and electromagnetism act interdependently.
  • Material Calibration

  • Virtual prototyping is the level of simulation we all aspire to, but it can only be that accurate with correct material models. We have the tools and experience to get that data and conduct those simulations.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Material evaluation
    - Material model development
  • Ideal for:
    - Building virtual prototyping methodologies by incorporating real-world data specific to you.
  • Design Optimization

  • One of the most powerful applications of FEA is the use of automated simulation to guide design parameters or even topology. With the right tools and careful model setup, a sophisticated analysis loop and iterate toward the ideal design within the requested constraints.
  • Key capabilities:
    - Topology, shape, & bead optimization
    - Parametric optimization
    - Design of experiments
  • Ideal for:
    - Generating or altering designs to meet multiple specific performance targets with maximum efficiency.
