FEA – Sales and Consulting
At Predictive Engineering, finite element analysis (FEA) is our business. We build efficient and accurate models every day.
We know which tools will work the best for your particular analysis project and we sell and support only the best: Femap / NX Nastran, CFdesign and LS-DYNA.
- Bring us your mechanical engineering challenges. We'll do whatever it takes to jump-start your use of FEA.
- Or, turn the project over to us completely.
- Our consulting services are widely considered to be a cut above our peer group. The difference? Our dedication to providing the right answers on time and on budget.
Whether it be software solutions or consulting, Predictive Engineering has the knowledge, experience, and technology to help your company take full advantage of FEA.
Engineers worldwide use Femap for modeling everything from simple solid components to entire spacecraft assemblies. This versatile preprocessor is also used throughout a broad range of engineering disciplines. From simple linear static analysis right through to advanced solutions based on LS-DYNA® from www.LSTC.com, Femap is the software of choice for creating accurate finite element models.
Open, compatible and Windows-based Femap is built on an advanced set of open technologies that allow it to work with almost all digital product definition data. Based on the Parasolid geometry kernel, Femap has direct access to some 35% of the world's digital product data. In addition, a number of state-of-the-art geometric extensions ensure that Femap is able to work with data from virtually any source, directly and seamlessly (e.g., CATIA, Autodesk Inventor, Pro/E, etc.). Femap also works with an unusually broad range of finite element solver solutions. More...
NX Nastran for Femap
For more than 30 years, NX Nastran has been the finite element analysis solver of choice in almost every major industry, including aerospace/ defense, automotive, shipbuilding, heavy machinery, medical and consumer products. It is an industry standard for analysis of stress, vibration, structural failure/ durability, heat transfer, noise/acoustics and flutter/aeroelasticity.
NX Nastran for Femap supports a broad range of NX Nastran capabilities, such as linear and non-linear static, normal modes, Eigenvalue, transient/dynamic, frequency/harmonic response, response spectrum, random response and buckling. In addition NX Nastran for Femap includes additional options for aeroelasticity, super-elements, optimization and DMAP. More...
LS-DYNA® from Livermore Software Technology Corp. (LTSC) is the world's most advanced general-purpose nonlinear finite element program. It is capable of simulating complex real-world problems, and is widely accepted as the premier analysis software package for today's most challenging engineering applications.
LS-DYNA can predict how a prototype will respond to real-world events such as crashes, drops, earthquakes, bird strikes, and so on. The ability to simulate these events in software minimizes the time and expense that must be devoted to experimental testing.
LS-DYNA is well optimized on all platforms including multi-processor platforms (see table below). Its accuracy has been proven through extensive correlation with experimental data and, of course, analytical solutions. LS-DYNA is an invaluable tool for capturing extreme nonlinear events where other solvers have failed. More...
Training and Coaching
