Advanced FE analysis

Advanced Finite Element analysis covers a very large number of different analyses, depending on product features and material.

In an advanced analysis, there are typically multiple moving elements or a combination of multiple materials. Examples are Multibody Dynamics, Structural Analysis and Computational Fluid Dynamics.

Deep insight

As MSC Software reseller for more than 30 years we have deep insight and access to the entire MSC Software product portfolio including MSC Nastran, Marc and Adams.

We have detailed experience from a varaity of industries. Our background ensures that we can assist in covering all technical issues and even do specific analysis.

Use of FEM in the design phase

In the design phase of product development, situations often occur where multiple designs can perform an intended function. In most cases a given product load will be required.

In order to make the right choice, the best solution is to use a FEM Analysis, which can provide detailed answers to many questions already in the design phase.

Virtual test of adapter connection


The example shown here is a simple calculation of a relatively complex 3D geometry from an adapter link which is to be manufactured in standard metal or polymer. The party is maintained at defined locations and load is specified as the gravity/pressure/forces/temperature, etc.

What data do we need?

The follow data is required:

  • CAD geometry or alternatively sketches
  • Material definition with mechanical and physical properties (available from the material supplier)
  • Description of boundary conditions and loads

What questions does the FEM analysis answer?

Results of interest are often a state of deformation or maximum deflection, as well as an illustration of where tension occurs in the product.

How long does the analysis take?

Normally, a simple task without non-linear effects could be solved at approx. 3 hours.

Strength test on a bicycle handlebar

In this example, linear stability is added. The complexity is identical to the example on the adapter link.

What data do we need?

  • CAD geometry or alternatively sketches.
  • Material definition with mechanical and physical properties (available from the material supplier)
  • Description of boundary conditions and loads

Which questions does the FEM analysis answer?

How much load can the bicycle handle carry and what happens when the load increases? What is the optimal material consumption for this construction?

In this case, the material will begin to flow before it becomes unstable. One possibility could be to find a more realistic maximum permissible load of the bicycle handlebar with a nonlinear analysis type to allow the flow of the material into the analysis.

How long does the analysis take?

A task of this type can be solved in approx. 2 hours.

Virtual Testing of Collection

An example could be a pallet lift where many parts play together.

Can the system handle the forces it is exposed to during boot? And can it be optimized?

The internal forces in the system are unknown as they are very complex.

Using Adams from MSC Software a Multibody model is made, where the relevant parts are "FEM" models. The advantage of using Multibody is that you can make most parts in the construction simple, so you can make calculations on the entire product in real time, and then view the loads internally on simple FEM models and elements.

What data do we need?

  • CAD geometry or alternatively, measurable sketches
  • Material definition with mechanical and physical properties (available from the material supplier)
  • Speed ​​and acceleration.

What questions does the FEM/Multibody analysis answer?

How much is the load on the product during stop, start and driving? Will there be vibrations in the construction? What forces are the parts exposed to?

How long does the analysis take?

This depends on what data you need. Setting up a model like this might be done in ½ - 1 day.
