FEM-Calculation of Components and Structures


Finite element analysis

Based on a CAD geometry, we create a calculation model of the component. This is loaded with the specified extreme and fatigue loads. In the evaluation, we identify critical areas and then optimize the structure.
We can calculate both metal and fiber reinforced materials.

Structural Optimization

Structural Optimization

Components are often exposed to local stresses while most areas are oversized. We offer the optimization of these components. Among other things, generic algorithms can reduce the mass of components without compromising their safety.

Fiber reinforced components GFRP and CFRP

Fiber reinforced components GFRP and CFRP

We offer the calculation of fiber reinforced components. We have experience with both glass fiber and carbon fiber reinforced components.

Fatigue Calculation

Fatigue calculation

Wind turbines are exposed to fatigue loads with more than 200 million cycles. Due to many years of experience, we can calculate the lifetime of metal parts as well as of fiber reinforced components.

FEMAP with NX Nastran

We use FEMAP with NX Nastran. It is one of the most powerful finite element programs for the calculation and simulation of mechanical, dynamic and thermal processes.

It can be used to calculate all application problems. For example, linear and non-linear statics, thermal analyses as well as dynamic analyses such as time non-linear actions or vibration problems.

Nastran was developed by NASA in the 1960s and is the first commercial FEM solver. Today, NX Nastran is the world's leading FEM solver and is known to be excellent for solving complex calculations.
