Finite Element Analysis
Finite element analysis (FEA) is a process that finds and solves structural, material and functional issues during the design for manufacture phase of your product.
With computer aided design (CAD) software, our engineers use FEA to digitally break down a solid part into its components. It can then be assigned stress concentrations, maximal loads and materials.
By stress testing with FEA, we can create economical designs that are proven to perform optimally before reaching the manufacturing line.
Simulating Real World Applications
FEA unlocks extremely cost-efficient opportunities to stress test and optimise your product early in the development cycle.
Our design engineers use CAD software to simulate real-world applications with consideration for physical , elemental and gravitational body loads.
FEA testing includes, but is not limited to variations in acceleration, velocity, displacement, pressure, temperature and heat flux.
When a part experiences high energy or stress, it can lead to premature wear-and-tear or even critical failure. By minimising energy concentration with FEA, we can maximise the lifespan and functionality of your design
By using energy minimisation techinques, our engineers always choose the most optimal materials and design configurations possible. This reduces end-to-end cost while maximising your product’s strength and integrity.
Benefits of FEA
FEA is flexible process that can be applied to both existing and new product designs. By comprehensively testing the materials and design in your product, we can ensure that your design will be able to perform optimally before manufacture.
Romar uses FEA to:
- optimise and predict product performance, reliability, and safety
- reduce margin of error during prototyping phases
- minimise energy concentrations
- reduce overall material cost through optimal material selection
