structures & Assemblies
Structural analyses of assemblies, weldments and parts can be conducted to predict behavior or to ensure integrity or code compliance. Failure modes such as buckling and fatigue as well as non-linear responses such as post-yield deformation and large deflections can also be evaluated. Designs can be optimized to reduce material and minimize secondary costs associated with packaging and shipping. Structural simulations are not limited to predictive design studies but can also serve in forensic evaluations.
