Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Finite Element Analysis (“FEA” or “FE Analysis”) is now utilized worldwide in manufacturing to save on time and costs of prototyping by simulating a loading condition on a given component.  We utilize FEA to establish absolute or comparison criteria and ultimately determine the safety factors acceptable for your design.  Alan Barry’s FEA team is experienced in linear and non-linear problem-solving as well as CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics), frequency response, and many more simulation techniques.

Optimizing your design is another common request that we can use FEA to solve, whether it is to determine the most efficient and cost-effective materials to use or how to simplify a given mechanism.  This technique allows parts or assemblies to be iterated upon until certain criteria is reached, thus optimizing the design within the desired constraints.
