Finite Element Analysis Consultants
DOCAN have extensive Finite Element Analysis (FEA) consulting experience, solving the most complex mechanical engineering problems for our clients through structural, thermal and dynamic analysis methods.
FEA Service Capabilities
Our team of consulting engineers have longstanding and recognised expertise in the field of finite element analysis, ranging from detailed stress analysis and linear dynamics to pipe stress and pressure vessel analysis.
With vast experience across a range of projects and industries, we can apply the FEA method to any product development process whether that be a simple structure or a complex design.
Using finite element analysis, we can accurately predict how your product will react to specific physical impacts and real-world forces, and offer a fully engineered solution to solve any potential mechanical problems.
Applications of our core FEA consultancy services include:
- Stress Analysis (stress, strain, factors of safety, fatigue, creep)
- Vibration Analysis (modal, harmonic, random, transient dynamic)
- Thermal Analysis (conduction, convention, radiation, conjugate heat transfer)
- Seismic Analysis (equivalent static, response spectrum, transient dynamics)
- Impact & Crash Analysis (equivalent static, short duration explicit simulation)
Specialists in Explicit FEA
For extremely nonlinear dynamic problems or those subject to extreme loading conditions such as high impact crashes and ballistic events, static analysis can’t accurately resolve the problem. This is where explicit FEA comes in.
DOCAN have unrivalled experience in the application of explicit FEA, a method which requires a great deal of skill and knowledge to capture highly dynamic events and understand the physics.
Leveraging the most advanced FEA techniques and industry leading software, we have the capabilities to offer a sophisticated approach which best suits your product and delivers a commercially viable solution.
