30 Years of FEMAP

Siemens PLM put together a nice video showing the evolution of FEMAP over the last 30 years. It showcases some of the major projects that have been involved in FEMAP over the years.

Another successful LS-DYNA training class

LS-DYNA training May 2017A quick thank-you is due to all of the attendees to our May 2017 LS-DYNA training. The five day class focused on building accurate nonlinear transient simulations. The learning process was based on workshops covering how one could take basic data (e.g.,engineering stress-strrain) and geometry and then create an advanced simulation that could be verified and taken forward to validation with confidence. Best practices were advocated from mass scaling, element formulation (elform=-16) to MORTAR contact to encourage the students to first get a model that would run and then later on optimized it for numerical efficiency. The last day of the class focused on LS-DYNA's rapidly evolving implicit capabilities. Our next LS-DYNA training class will be May 14 - 18, 2018.


Why Your Project Will be Right

Predictive Engineering has been offering mechanical engineering analysis services for more than twenty years. We have over 800+ successful projects to our credit. Our work has been strain gauged, drop-tested, benchmarked, validated, proof tested, shaker-tabled and implemented in hundreds of designs. We have optimized structures from deep-diving submarines, tail rotor blades on a Sikorsky Helicopter, high-temperature hydrogen reactors, composite antenna systems, 3,000 HP transmissions, NQA-1 nuclear waste processing vessels to R&D satellites for the US Air Force. Additionally, we have extensive experience with LS-DYNA over the last 15 years and have done projects on: projectile impact, pyro-shock detonation, fracture of ductile and brittle materials, drop-testing of composite structures, electron-beam welding and impact of metal, plastic, elastomer and foam structures. Least we be too technical, we have also successfully modeled the shaker-table transport of French fries using the discrete element method (DEM).
