|Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a very useful computer based tool that can simulate how a product or component reacts to different real-world forces. This can be anything from vibration, temperature, fluid dynamics, and force. This tool can be used as an indication to whether a design will fail at a certain point or how it will react under a given load. This information is fed back into the design to improve its performance or strength. This ultimately provides confidence in a design before physical testing begins.
Brightworks have used FEA on a number of projects to improve its design before going forward to prototyping and manufacture. Our knowledge of this analysis tool allows us to quickly identify potential weak points in a design, and how to efficiently modify it based on the information provided. In some cases specialist FEA engineers are collaborated with to ensure the best service for our clients.
