Davies Engineering Expertise: Part 3 of 4 – Finite Element Analysis (FEA)


When modifying or designing a new part, Davies uses a computer model of a material or design that is stressed and analyzed for specific results. FEA uses a complex system of points called nodes that create a mesh and are programmed to contain the material and structural properties to define how the part will react under certain loading conditions.  This allows Davies’ engineers to verify whether or not a proposed design will perform to the client’s specifications prior to molding the part, saving customers unnecessary expense and lost time.  Click here for more information on Finite Element Analysis and our other services to create your custom part.  Want to learn more about the history of using Finite Element Analysis?  Click here to read more about it from the Virginia Tech Material Science and Engineering Department.
