8 Leet Long Thin Plate Vertical Displacement FEA:

This is a long, thin, narrow, and flexible  metal chain plate. Customer want to know the center displacement under its own weight.

This saw blade is so thin and long. It is difficult to hand calculation to estimate its behavior. We apply the FEA analysis to assist the customer to predict the vertical displacement under its self-weight. So the customer can decide if their overall machineary design is feasible.

Design Calculation

conducts a review of the design documentation for a particular model to determine if the design complies with the technical design standard specified for the application. It should include a review of design calculations, detailed design drawings including material specifications and manufacturing requirements.

Stress analysis is an engineering discipline that uses many methods to determine the stresses and strains in materials and structures subjected to forces. The methods can be traditional calculation or finite element analysis (FEA) based on industrial codes.

FEA is a computer-based method of simulating/analyzing the behavior of engineering structures and components under a variety of conditions. It is an  an advanced engineering tool that is used in design and to augment/replace experimental testing.

FEA  is  widely  accepted  in  almost  all  engineering  disciplines.  The method is often used as an alternative to the experimental test method set out in many standards. The technique is based on the premise  that  an  approximate  solution  to  any  complex  engineering  problem  can  be  reached  by subdividing  the  structure/component  into  smaller  more  manageable  (finite)  elements.   It can  be  specified  with  much  greater  accuracy  than  that  used  in classical hand calculations

It is possible to generate a simulation of any design concept and to determine its real world behavior under almost any imaginable environments, therefore allowing the concept to be refined prior to the creation of drawings, when few dollars have been committed and changes are inexpensive. Once a model has been developed the analysis helps in evaluating the feasibility of the new design as well as trouble shooting failed designs already in the market and finding solutions without the need to prototype and waste time and money.

PetroPi has a wide range of stress analysis and simulation capabilities ranging from individual component stress analysis to multi-part assemblies with complex deformations, contact friction, thermal gradients, and/or material plasticity. PetroPi engineering stress analysis and simulation services can be performed standalone or can be coupled with PetroPi’s design engineering services to optimize and validate designs, while reducing overall project lead time.

Our Stress analysis are based on industries standards like ASME B31.3 piping, ASME Section VIII, Divisions 1 & 2 Codes, and etc. When classical hand calculations are difficult because of shapes, loads and constraints, PetroPi uses finite element analysis (FEA).

Our FEA consulting expertise that we provide is listed below:

  • Basic Linear Structural Analysis and Dynamic Response
  • Analysis with Composite Material
  • Optimization of design with weight/cost reduction
  • Removal of redundant components from design

Benefits of FEA Simulation include:

  • Accurately assess the performance & safety of any design prior to manufacture
  • Identify and resolve design faults early
  • Minimize cost of materials & maximize product performance
  • Reduce development costs
  • Speed up time to market

We can help you answer questions like:

  • Will your structure/product withstand all working loads?
  • Will permanent deformation occur under given conditions?
  • Can it withstand accidents safely?
  • Can you reduce material contents or use less expensive material?
