Frequently asked questions about Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

1. What is FEA consulting and how can it benefit my company?

Finite Element analysis can be used to analyze how strong parts before they are built, to achieve higher performance in operation, and/or reduce weight/cost.  Higher reliability, thermal performance, noise and vibration performance, and drop test performance can also be analyzed.


2. How does FEA analysis work?

In Finite Element Analysis, a mechanical part is chopped into small pieces, and relevant physics equations are solved for each piece; the results are added back together to show answers for the whole part. This might include stress, strain, thermal, reliability, and vibration equations.


3. How does FEA consulting differ from traditional engineering analysis?

Traditional engineering analysis uses analytical equations to solve for relevant physics quantities. But when geometry gets complicated, these equations are usually too difficult to solve.


4. What types of industries typically require FEA consulting services?

Any industry that uses mechanical parts is a good candidate for FEA


5. What are some common FEA simulation analyses?

Common analyses may include:

  • Strength analysis, assessing stress and deformation.
  • Structural stability vs. buckling.
  • Fatigue and durability analyses
  • Fracture and crack growth
  • Thermal loading impact
  • Modal analysis to determine characteristic natural frequency of structures
  • Harmonic analysis to determine a structure’s response to a steady harmonic load
  • Response spectrum analysis to determine a structure’s response to random or time-independent loading conditions – earthquakes, wind, ocean waves, jet engine thrust, or rocket motor vibrations
  • Random vibration analysis to determine a structure’s response to random vibrations
  • Kinematic studies to analyze rigid body motion
  • Rapid dynamics to analyze response to short-duration extreme loading (drop test, impact, penetration)


6. Can FEA consulting be used for both static and dynamic analysis?



7. What data/inputs will be required for running FEA analysis?

Typically, geometry information, material properties, and loading conditions are required to run an FEA analysis.


8. What qualifications and expertise should I look for in an FEA consulting firm?

Expertise in the relevant physics (mechanical engineering, thermal, etc.), and years of experience conducting FEA analyses.


9. What software and tools do FEA consulting firms use for analysis?

Finite Analysis software is generally used for these analyses. ANSYS is a leading brand, with industry leading validation where simulation results correlate directly with real world test data.


10. How much does FEA consulting typically cost?

Depending on the complexity of what you are trying to solve, and what you are solving for, FEA consulting assignment cost can vary widely, from $1000s to tens of thousands of dollars. Please contact us at with your project so we can provide further information.


11. Can FEA consulting help optimize my product design for better performance and cost efficiency?

Yes. Simulation allows one to vary materials, dimensions, configurations, stiffness/weight, etc., for a variety of operating conditions, or manufacturing tolerances to reduce cost and increase performance.


12. How accurate are the results obtained from FEA consulting?

Comparison between simulation and experimental results can vary widely, depending on a number of factors. These include simulation setup expertise, experimental setup expertise, experimental errors, difficulty and complexity of the analysis. There are analysis accuracy vs. analysis time tradeoffs– a larger amount of smaller mesh can be more accurate, but takes longer to run. But in general, there is good agreement between experimental and simulation results.


13. What results and files can I expect from FEA consulting?

In general, one can expect quantification and/or pictures of the analysis inputs – geometry, materials, loading specifications – and quantification and/or pictures of the analysis outputs. This might include deformation, stress, response spectrum, etc., depending on the type of analysis run.
