FINITE ELEMENT METHOD ANALYSIS (F.E.M.)

To offer a qualified service, the team of engineers of Mechanical System also performs analysis with the Finite Element Method (FEM).

This type of calculations, used by manufacturers throughout the world as a standard in the design process of the products, allows definition in the preliminary phase, optimized geometries to achieve a reduction of production costs and improve the performance of the artifacts, making them safer, more durable, lightweight, consequently allowing you to save time and costs.

In the engineering phase, through these analyzes, it is possible to avoid the construction of intermediate prototypes.

Meccanica System offers valuable experience and a distinguished performance record in the following:

Finite Element (FE) Modeling

We can create finite element models, starting from the client’s Computer Aided Design (CAD) geometry. Modeling criteria is defined together with the customer. Meccanica System can produce input files compatible with major FEM systems.

 

Finite Elements Static Analysis - Linear and Non-Linear

The goal is to predict the stress/strain level of single parts or assemblies. Results and the post processing methods are defined according to the customer’s specifications.

 

Finite Elements Dynamic Analysis – Modal and Frequency Response Function (FRF)

We have experience in dynamic simulation with FEM, by both modal analysis (Eigen frequencies) and dynamic responses of a Meccanica System.

 

Composites

Meccanica System’s employees have sustained experience in analysis and optimization of structures made by composite materials in many engineering sectors (automotive, Railways, industrial, etc.).

 

Design Optimization

Based on simulation results, Meccanica System can propose design modifications with the aim of optimizing the product.

Our company applies the following standard:

UNI EN 12633-1:2010, UNI EN 15277:2011, UNI EN 15663:2009, EN 15085-3:2007, UIC 566, NF F 31-119, EUROCODE 3 and 9, VDI 2230 Part 1 of 2003,

CEI EN 61373:2000.

 

Piping Stress Analysis


The stress analysis is done to prevent sagging of the piping and then analyze the flexibility of routing designed; this to keep the tensions below the allowable limits dictated by the computer codes of reference and current regulations.
