DH Glabe & Associates performs finite element analysis (FEA or FEM) of structural components for buildings, bridges, tools, mechanical & electrical equipment, and other components that necessitate detailed structural analysis. Our FEA engineers provide linear and non-linear FEA depending on the specific requirements of the client. The goal of a finite element analysis is to determine the expected behavior or response of a physical object under imposed loads. The results of the analysis provide our engineers with information that will help them to understand how the object under consideration will bend, break, or perform safely under the imposed loads.
A computational model of the physical object under consideration is developed using sophisticated structural analysis software by an experienced DH Glabe & Associates structural engineer. The material properties of the object are carefully determined and input into the model. The object is divided into a series of small elements called a mesh that together make up the whole of the object.
