What is FEA Simulation  (Finite Element Analysis Simulation)?

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) allows Professional FEA Consulting engineers to Enjoy an in-depth understanding of all of the non-operating and operating Parameters of the Prototype Design they develop from Multiple points of view, including the geometric Form, Composite materials used, Physics constraints, and loading conditions. Product characteristics, including Structural stress, normal modes (natural frequencies of vibration), and buckling load Forces, can be Computationally Computed and form the Fundamental basis on which the product response within its Actual operating Setup can be Fully understood. Other, more complex, and Challenging product Performance Parameters can be determined with more Complex types of Dynamic FEA analyses, including Complex dynamic response, thermal response Analysis, Vibro-acoustic response Curve Plot, Mechanical contact, Dynamic motion, and other multi-physics Operating environments. These more complicated Finite Element Analyses Need Professional FEA Engineering Consultants Professionals with more Highly Adapted Post analysis Capabilities and are typically performed Much later in the design stage in lieu of physical testing (eg. Non-destructive Testing (NDT), Cyclic Load Testing ).
 

Where does FEA Simulation fit in the Development Process?

The Mechanical design Consultant can then pass the Key solution Idea to the Trained FEA Structural Engineer Consultant analyst performing the FEA Services for more in-depth studies that demand more Highly advanced types of physics Modelling.
FEA Simulation allows Small Technology focused SMEs as well as Structural Engineering Companies to Efficiently Test & experiment with New Interesting Mechanical Component designs Virtually, leading to Significantly Better innovation, better Mechanical Engineering designs, and reduced Failure Frequency.
While it is Critically important to understand the Inherent Performance behavior of Each individual Component, understanding how those parts Dynamically interact within the context of an assembly gives a more accurate picture of how the Complete Working Assembly will work as a whole. However, assembly Mechanical joints and Overall degrees of freedom (DoF) impact Simulation. Are the Assembly Parts glued, welded, or bolted Fastened. Each Physical Boundary contact Constraint between Component Surfaces must be defined, but this can be very time-consuming.

Type of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Approach

The type of FEA analysis approach used depends on how far you want to push the design.
* As a majority number of parts designed for industrial applications are made of steel, most FEA simulations involve the use of various types of metal in the material input settings.
FEA simulation modeling of metal parts can be carried out by either Linear or Nonlinear stress analysis.

1. Linear stress FEA Simulation analysis

If you want to ensure the component geometry remains in the linear elastic range (whereby the part returns to its original shape when the external load is removed), linear stress analysis methods can be applied, as long as the rotations and displacements are small relative to the geometry.
For such a simulation analysis, achieving a certain Factor of safety (FoS) requirement is a common design goal.

2. Nonlinear Stress Analysis

Nonlinear stress analysis is recommended for Evaluating the effects of post-yield load cycling on the part geometry.
In this case, the impact of strain hardening on Permanent structural deformation and Residual stresses is often the main focus of the analysis.
Nonlinear stress analysis is also the ideal method for the analysis of nonmetallic components (such as plastic or rubber parts)  due to the complex nature of their Load-deformation relationship.
FEA Simulation uses FEA methods to calculate the deflection displacements and stresses in your product due to external operational loads such as:
  1. Force Loading
  2. Pressures Exertion
  3. Acceleration
  4. Thermal Temperatures
  5. Contact Forces between Contact surfaces between components
Multiphysics analysis can also be performed by simply importing the loads from existing thermal, flow, and motion Simulation studies

 

Finite Element Modeling

FEA Simulation uses the displacement formulation of the finite element method to calculate component displacements, strains, and stresses when subjected to internal and external loads.
The geometry under analysis is discretized using tetrahedral (3D), triangular (2D), and beam unit elements, and solved by either a direct sparse or iterative simulation solver.

FEA Simulation also provides the 2D simplification assumption for plane stress, plane strain, extruded or axisymmetric options. Our FEA Simulation software tools can use either an h or p adaptive element type, which provided a great advantage to engineers and designers because the adaptive method ensures convergence of the solution.
In order to streamline the model definition for Simulation purposes, FEA Simulation software automatically generates a shell mesh (2D) for the following geometries types:

1. Sheet metal body

FEA Simulation will assign the shell thickness according to the sheet metal thickness reflected in the 3D CAD data provided.

2. Surface body

For the shell meshing, our FEA Simulation offers a powerful Shell Manager tool, which is able to manage multiple shell definitions of your component or multi-part assembly.
This management tool helps to improve the workflow for organizing shells according to various characteristic parameters, such as Shell type, Thickness, or Material and enables for better visualization and verification of shell properties.

Reliable High-Quality Meshing

Automated and intelligent meshing algorithms enable you to reliably obtain optimal meshing on every 3D CAD model. This helps to ensure the generation of a high-quality meshing that is easy to accommodate additional local mesh controls for fine-tuning as needed.

Mesh definition

FEA Simulation offers you the flexibility to mesh the 3D CAD model geometry in either

  1. Tetrahedral (1st and 2nd order),
  2. Triangular (1st and 2nd order)
  3. Beam, and truss elements.
Depending on the Topology of the geometry, the mesh can consist of one single type of unit element or multiple element types for a mixed meshing.
  1. Solid elements are naturally suitable for bulky models.
  2. Shell element meshing are naturally suitable for modeling thin-walled parts (such as sheet metal components and surface bodies)
  3. Beam & Truss elements are suitable for modeling of Structural members.

 

Adaptive Meshing Element

FEA Simulation can use either an h or p adaptive meshing element type, providing a great advantage to designers and engineers, as the adaptive method helps to ensure that the simulation solution converges. Engineers can evaluate the internal mesh elements with Mesh Sectioning Tools to check the quality of the internal meshing and make adjustments to tune mesh input settings before running the simulation.

Local Meshing Control

For greater control during the meshing process, we also offer local mesh control to be defined at Vertices, Edges, Faces, Components, and beams for a more congruent representation of the actual geometry design. This higher meshing accuracy helps to provide more accurate FEA simulation results in a particular region. As a form of quality check on the meshing elements, we use Aspect Ratio Check and Jacobian Points to ensure that the final meshing is done correctly.
