Finite Element Analysis FEA and Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD

As part of our design and engineering process we understand how important is to optimize each product to reduce costs and obtain the best performance, either mechanical or thermal.

We have the required experience to produce specific 3D models for each simulation and know how to produce relevant results quickly and accurate. Our engineering background and professional experience allows us not only to produce results, but understand them and redesign the product according to it’s requirements.

If your product requires a competitive advantage in cost or functionality and you need to reduce developing time and cost, certainly FEA or CFD might be the tools you need to use.

To see an example of our work, please scroll down to a FEA case study:

FEA Case Study

Create a fan case for a cooling plant. The case was to be use on top of the cooling plant in a horizontal position to cover a 600mm diameter hole where a fan was located. The two main constrains were: To weigh less than 700gr to be cost effective, and support a load of 90Kg, in case someone step on it.  The case was to be produce using BASF Ultradur or Ultramid polymer. It also had comply with the injection moulding flow constrains. And obtain the bigger possible free area to have the best air flow.

Stage 1
Several concepts were designed, of which three were selected due to their aesthetics and performance.

fan 1

Stage 2
The selected concepts were tested using FEA under a set of load conditions and different material properties. Of which one concept was selected as the most suitable.fan 1

Stage 3
The selected design was optimized by changing the geometry, reinforcing certain areas and changing material thickness where required. The design process went through a design and test process until the component reached the optimized design, where it weight less, withstood the load and complied with the plastic flow and moulding requirements.fan 1
Stage 4
Detain engineering and “final touch” as taking care of all the details to produce a perfect design.
The component was again tested using FEA and 3D rendering were produced for marketing purposes.fan 1
Stage 5
A rapid Prototype was produced using ABS in SLA. The prototype, although would not cope with the loads due to the material properties, permitted to revise the geometry, aesthetics, assembly and performance.

Stage 6
Final Drawings and documentation were produce among the 3D Solids to produce the tooling and manufacture.fan 1
