Featured Simulation Case Study

building energy design


Energy Efficient Building

The building was designed and developed with efficient features that enabled a zero energy consumption and a maximum level of sustainability while maintaining thermal comfort levels of occupants.
To achieve that, several innovative systems were developed, such as an exterior skin material that collects solar radiation and functions as passive climatization system, or an external thermal inertia that improves building energy efficiency (among others).



shaft failure


Investigation of Mechanical Failure

Client detected a durability problem on their mechanical needle valves installed in hydroelectric power plants. Replacement or repairing these valves require extremely costly maintenance. Through a detailed CFD design analysis, a vibration problem was detected on the needle shaft due to Von Karman vortexes in the wake of the needle, which created turbulence-induced vibrations through the valve body. The fatigue problem was confirmed on failed parts through metallographic analysis. A design modification was implemented and the problem fully eradicated.



high speed cabin

CFD Analysis of Lift

A different mode of aerodynamic analysis was carried out in order to accurately model the high-speed airflow in the elevator shaft around the high load cabin and foresee pressure variations on all elevator components (eg. guides, brakes, doors, etc) for high-speed models. Components were optimized to obtain a more efficient fluid airflow around the cabin, minimize pressure blast on doors and minimize drastic pressure fluctuations.



nozzle development

Design Optimization of Nozzle

The client engineering department needed to revamp and evolve their existing series of firefighting spray nozzles to improve their penetration in some international markets. The design of several internal components was optimized through CFD in order to reduce recoil and pressure drop in the nozzle while extending the effective range of water spray.



About Finite Elemental Method (FEM)

Before we deep dive into any discussion on Finite Element Analysis (FEA), it is critical to have an appreciation of the Finite Elemental Method (FEM) which is the basic precursor concept behind all FEA analysis.
Traditionally, engineering analysis of mechanical systems has been done by deriving differential equations related to the variables involved. However, solving the resulting mathematical models is often impossible, especially when non-linear partial differential equations are involved. This is where Finite Elemental Method steps in.

The basic concept behind Finite Elemental Method is to replace any complex shape with the summation of a large number of regular and simple unit element shapes (like a rectangle, triangle, etc.). These unit shapes are then combined together to accurately model the original component.
These smaller, simpler unit shapes are called ‘Finite elements’ because each of such unit element occupies a finite sub-space within the original, complex shape.
As a result, this makes the visualization and Simulation of complex geometry objects much simpler as

1. The 3D model now is made up of smaller identical shaped components.
2. With the use of Finite elements, there are absolutely no issues of overlap in space, which is in contrast to Finite difference models.

What is Finite Element Analysis (FEA)?

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) refers to the application of FEM method to use infinitesimally small or differential elements
to derive differential equations for purpose of performing a simulation analysis.
FEA is thus a numerical method that offers a means to find close approximate solutions to an otherwise complicated mechanical design challenges.

FEA has traditionally been a branch of Solid Mechanics. However, with the introduction of highly sophisticated CAD and CAE software tools, FEA analysis methodology methods are now used to solve engineering design challenges in a wide range of mechanical and other engineering fields such as Aerospace and defense, Automotive, Electromechanical and Consumer electronics, Heavy machinery engineering, and Power and energy generation engineering.

In general, an FEA analysis can be broken down into the following sequence

1. Divide up the intervals of integration. The numerical result of the analysis is a rough approximation to the actual solution
2. In each of the sub-interval, choose proper simple functions to emulate the actual function.
The accuracy of the numerical result depends on the number of sub-interval and approximate function.

An FEA analysis on a software system typically requires the following input information

– Material Mass properties
– Boundary conditions
– Spatial Distribution of Nodal point locations on Object surface
– Differential Elements connecting each of the Nodal points
– Information of the force Loading conditions/function
– Analysis options

Application Areas of FEA

FEA analysis service is the most common software tool deployed for analysis of Stress and Structural investigation.
It can also be integrated to receive input information from other engineering analysis tools like Kinematics analysis systems and Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD) systems.

Finite Element (FEA) software can be used in engineering stress analysis applications such as:

– Mechanical Engineering design
– Computer Aided Drafting (CAD) and Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) simulation services
– Civil Structural Analysis
– Modal Analysis
– Simulation of Solid Mechanics performance behaviors (eg. Non-linear Deflection displacements, crash impact)
– Static stress analysis of complex Multi-part assemblies
– Fatigue & Fracture Mechanics for Failure analysis & prediction of component life
– Analysis of Thermal and Electrical
– Mold Flow Analysis
– Sheet Metal forming analysis

Disadvantages of Conventional Prototype Testing

Traditional prototype testing of new product concepts infeasible as it is

1. Costly

Often the cost of fabricating a physical prototype can be extremely cost prohibitive if the size is huge and cutting of steel molds is required for molding of metals or plastics.
This prototyping cost is further amplified with each cycle of test iteration.

2. Takes up a Long testing time

In some instances, physical prototype validation that involves endurance testing involves subjecting the prototype to a continuous cyclic testing over an extended period of time. This process can be very time to consume and delay product development cycles.

3. In-conclusive Failure Root Cause

In the event that there is an occurrence of a design failure, a physical prototype testing in often cases do not accurately provide a conclusive insight into the actual cause of the failure.

Therefore, apart from the simulation software, there are other key factors that play a crucial role in ensuring the accuracy of the FEA Analysis results
Some of these major factors include

1. Accurate Interpretation of Post-Analysis Data

As most FEA analysis are undertaken in an ideal theoretical environmental condition, having a broad interpretation of the analysis data that takes into consideration of external real-world conditions is important.
Therefore this requires that the FEA consultant that execute the FEA services to have both Depth and Diversity of Industrial Experience.

2. Accuracy of Input Parameters

Accuracy of the Finite Element Analysis simulation service highly depends on the correct application of input parameters, such as Geometry, Physics, Loading forces and Material properties
