Finite Element Calculation

Would you like to know the weak points of the future construction, quickly and accurately mathematical way? Here the finite element method (FEM) will help. This will eliminate the need to produce an experimental sample and conduct tests, will save time and money.

The essence of the calculation by the finite element method is that the product is virtually demarcated into segments with the corresponding properties of the material of manufacture, after which a computer calculation of the limiting possibilities of the structure of resistance to static, dynamic, thermal and other loads is carried out. This approach is based on the fact that the geometric shape of the parts of the product determines its strength and other dependent physical characteristics.

Efficiency of computer modeling of physical processes

Finite Element Calculation

Ultra-precise mathematical modeling of the operation process allows to identify weak points of the structure at the design stage and eliminate them, optimally distributing the load between its parts, improving the necessary technical characteristics.

Often, the general parameters of the product have sufficient indicators for use, however, unrecorded weak points may not be detected during operation, but pose a potential danger. FEM (Finite Element Method) makes it possible to eliminate errors during project development and, as a result, in the future to avoid costly rework, costly repairs or accidents. Devman’s finite element analysis is part of the development of design documentation or is provided as a separate service. FEM will be needed when:

  • launch into production of a new product;
  • changes in production technology;
  • production line upgrades;
  • improvement of the manufactured product;

The main directions of application of the method:

  • calculation of the effective life of the structure;
  • calculation of strength and stiffness;
  • thermal conductivity analysis and heat transfer calculation;
  • cooling system design;
  • analysis of aerodynamics and hydrodynamics;
  • increase efficiency;
  • calculation of dynamic loads of equipment at high speeds;
  • analysis of the propagation of waves and vibrations, the search for mechanisms for their damping;
