Perfectly Simulating Reality

Abb. FEM-BerechnungDevelopment and design always involves determining the ideal interplay between the widest range of components. The material compound, design and desired functionality must be in perfect harmony with each other. That is why we calculate developments in our own FEM division.

Above all, we work on ANSA, MSC. Marc Mentat and MSC. Marc. And of course we consult our clients on the systems we will use for a given project.

Dynamic analyses

In real operations, components are affected by various factors that change with time.

The strain and deformation in most cases is not constant and can be subject to significant changes. Dynamic interactions in the system result in forces that can increase the static loads. In these cases, dynamic analyses are an absolutely critical supplement to static tests.

We calculate system responses in the time and frequency range, modal analyses and spectral power densities.

Linear analyses

Linear structural analyses of components and assemblies provide information about weak points and oversizing in the early stages of the development process. This reduces cost-intensive test runs on the real component to a minimum.

Calculations of tension and deformation are used as a basis for optimizing the geometrical structure.

Careful structural analyses improve the operation of components in the design phase and reduce project costs.

We include all simulation results directly in the design process. A time advantage that pays dividends for our customers. Our range of services includes tension calculation, deformation calculation as well as analyses of rigidity and resistance.

Grid generation

The requirement for the structural calculation is always the meshing and module-like arrangement of a component. The ideal results of a calculation depend to no small extent on the quality of the structural grid.

CADEA uses high-performance tools to generate the grid that will also facilitate a meshing of elements with high precision, even for components in complex geometric structures.

Non-linear analyses

Not all problems can be solved by linear methods. For example, non-linear material laws apply in particular to elastomers.

High degrees of deformation, contact problems and friction also require the use of non-linear processes.

CADEA uses very modern non-linear methods for the calculation of high degrees of deformation, the influence of friction, contact problems, buckling or non-linear material laws, and these methods provide complex material laws and advanced solutions.
