WaveFEA - Applications

WaveFEA's capabilities can bring engineering insight to your design process and help you spot problem areas, optimize performance, and virtually test before building expensive prototypes and fixtures. In short, you can save time and money while building more innovative, higher quality products.

 

Composites
Composites
  • The built in Progressive Ply Failure Analysis (PPFA) setup helps to determine the stresses, strains and failure indices of every layer of the composite material.
  • This allows us to simulate the crack propagation through the composite structure.
  • Quickly change the composite layers of a specific material and change the angles of the layers in order to bring more strength.

 

Impact Analysis
Linear Steady State Heat Transfer
  • Determine the Heat Flux and Temperature distribution within the product.
  • Using the principles of conduction and convection heat transfer, engineers can examine designs for equilibrium temperature distribution.
  • Results include thermal Loads like temperature, initial condition, body temperature, convection, heat flux, heat generation and radiation.

 

Durability
Durability
  • Validate the durability of the product right at the design stage with WaveFEA fast and iterative fatigue analysis.
  • Determines the localized structural damage when the design is subjected to cyclic loading.
  • Accurate estimates of the product life using the “Strain Life” and “Stress Life” calculation methods.

Stiffness
Stiffness
  • Effect of shear load can be reduced by bolt connectors.
  • WaveFEA’s fast and easy bolt connection tools makes joining two parts with bolts super easy.

 

Vibration Damper Analysis
Vibration Damper Analysis
  • Viscoelastic Material for dampers are exceptionally good at absorbing vibrations.
  • Understanding combined behavior of viscous and elastic in the material by modeling the behavior due to hardening or softening.
  • Applications include simulation of metal forming like rolling and deep drawing.
