Finite Element Analysis (i.e. Physics-Based Modeling & Simulation)

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) or Physics-Based Modeling & Simulations are an extremely useful method of analytically qualifying a design by simulating the design in its intended environment.

Even though FEA is extremely useful, caution should be used in assuming FEA as a full qualification method. The reason is because models do not assume defects in the design that are inherent to the manufacturing/installation processes therefore cannot completely predict how an actual product will behave in its intended environment.

Static Analyses

Static finite element analyses are the most common and useful types of FEA and can quickly identify weak points in a product design. JES has experience performing the following types of static analyses:

  • Linear & non-linear material models (including hyper-elastic materials)
  • Hydrostatic pressure
  • Inertial
  • Ultimate loads
  • Limit loads
  • Optimization studies
  • Thermal loads

Dynamic Analyses
