Benefits of the Finite Element Method

Computational simulation is a powerful tool for solving complex engineering problems that involve the finite element method (FEM). FEM is a numerical technique that divides a domain into smaller elements and approximates the governing equations at each element. By using computational simulation, engineers can perform FEM analysis faster, more accurately, and more efficiently than using analytical or experimental methods.

Some of the benefits of using computational simulation for the finite element method are:

  • It can handle nonlinear, dynamic, and coupled problems that are difficult or impossible to solve analytically.
  • It can account for material properties, boundary conditions, loading scenarios, and geometric features that are not easily modeled by experiments.
  • It can provide detailed information on the stress, strain, displacement, temperature, and other variables of interest at any point in the domain.
  • It can optimize the design and performance of a system by testing different parameters and scenarios without the need for physical prototypes or tests.
  • It can reduce the cost, time, and risk associated with engineering projects by minimizing errors, uncertainties, and failures.

At AltaSim Technologies, we guide engineers and clients through Multiphysics simulation projects with less frustration and more confidence in their results, so that they can bring their products to market more rapidly, at lower costs, and with optimized designs. Our consulting services have demonstrated savings for new technology and product development of up to 90% of the time and simultaneously 50% of the cost.

One of the first steps we take with any new client is conducting a robust onboarding program and a proprietary S3 process (Study, Simulate, and Solve) to understand your needs and specifications quickly so we can tackle the issue right away. While we work with small companies to Fortune 50 companies, gain peace of mind that regardless of your business size, you have access to outsourced simulation experts and therefore capabilities equivalent to larger competitors.
