Finite Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

The Finite Element Method is a mathematical technique used to obtain approximate solutions to engineering problems that can’t be solved using basic theories due to the complexity of the geometry, physics or boundary conditions. FEA is integrated into the design process to reduce costs. It is also used in science to improve the understanding of physical phenomena.

FEA services offered include:

  • Static and dynamic mechanical analysis
  • Nonlinear analysis (contact, nonlinear materials, large deformation)
  • Thermal analysis (heat transfer, thermal stress)
  • Multiphysics (including CFD and heat)

Idra Simulation offers consulting, training and technology transfer using open-source software such as Elmer, code_aster, OpenFOAM and Octave:

Elmer soft_openfoam CA_new octave

Our favorite pre- and post- processing tools for these software are Salome and ParaView:

We also use midas NFX, a multi-purpose commercial FEA software:

To create and modify mechanical designs, we use Autodesk Fusion 360:
