Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

We have facilities for the production of FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS (FEA) calculations in all materials. Our software has plate and shell elements and auto-meshing facilities allowing us to analyse the most complex of shapes.

Our computers are updated regularly to ensure that they have the power to cope with substantially large and complex models.

Specialist Geotechnical modules allow our software to model soil as springs, with spring stiffness evaluated from soil properties and borehole logs. This allows us to perform complicated FOUNDATION analysis for a variety of soil and foundation types.

Our FEA includes options include linear analysis, non-linear analysis (both material and geometrical non-linearities) and full plastic analysis; allowing advanced and economical steel and concrete design.
