Linear and NonLinear Statics Analysis
Linear and Non-Linear statics analysis is used for design and verification of products using a variety of
structural and thermal loads. Knowing how a design will perform under different statics load conditions
allows Designit4u engineers to recommend changes prior to physical prototyping, thus saving clients both
time and money.
Non-linearity includes geometric and material non-linearity effects. In the real world, most
engineering problems contain some kind of nonlinear effect.
Advanced NonLinear Analysis
Virtually all physical processes of interest to engineers are non-linear to some extent. Often
mathematical models of sufficient accuracy for design purposes can be formulated using linear
Typical applications include:
• Advanced Contact Analysis
• Prediction of Structural Failure
• Non Linear Stress Analysis
• Elevated Temperature Structural Simulations
• Highly Non-Linear Materials
Contact Stress Analysis
Contacts are not applied by default in most finite element analysis even though frictional contact is the
most common in almost all engineering situations. Utilizing the latest algorithms in our analysis
Designit4u can help our clients predict the contact stresses in your application, be it an
insertion/extraction, press-fit, or frictional contact, to help with design and verification.
Frequency and Buckling Analysis
Inherent vibration modes in structural components or mechanical support systems can shorten equipment
life and cause unexpected failures. Designit4u analysis experts can evaluate natural frequencies or
critical buckling loads and recommend design changes to improve product performance.
Thermal analysis deals with analyzing the effects of temperature on materials and design. Three
types of thermal effects, namely conduction, convection and radiation can be studied using advanced
computer simulations. Designit4u engineers have experience with modeling many complex thermal
analyses both steady state and transient.
