Finite Element Analysis

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is a method of predicting reactions to forces. It is a way of nondestructive testing or forensic testing, depending on the circumstances. FEA works by breaking down the object into smaller elements, thousands, or hundreds of thousands for larger sized objects. Then it applies a huge amount of processing power to […]

The Physics of Transport Vehicle Accidents

The physics of a vehicular accident vary greatly based upon the vehicles involved. When two normal passenger vehicles are involved, the physics, while not simple, are well understood, and there is specific software used to run analysis. However, once the vehicles exceed those parameters, with size, load, and design requirements, the physics can become much […]

Computational Fluid Dynamics

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful engineering simulation that allows us to evaluate gas or liquid behavior and how it interacts with the objects around it. Design of flow systems not only need to meet industry standards and safety regulations; we can take it one step further to predict the lifespan of equipment, […]
