Finite element analysis (FEA) is a computerized method for predicting how a product reacts to real-world forces, vibration, heat, fluid flow, and other physical effects. Finite element analysis shows whether a product will break, wear out, or work the way it was designed. It is called analysis, but in the product development process, it is used to predict what is going to happen when the product is used.
EA works by breaking down a real object into a large number (thousands to hundreds of thousands) of finite elements, such as little cubes. Mathematical equations help predict the behavior of each element. A computer then adds up all the individual behaviors to predict the behavior of the actual object.
Autodesk® Simulation CFD software provides fast, accurate, and flexible fluid flow and thermal simulation tools to help predict product performance, optimize designs, and validate product behavior before manufacturing – minimizing reliance on costly physical prototypes and helping you get innovative products to market faster.
Easily explore and compare design alternatives and better understand the implications of design choices using an innovative Design Study Environment and automation tools. Autodesk Simulation CFD software supports direct data exchange with most CAD software tools including Autodesk® Inventor® software, Autodesk® Revit® software, Pro/ENGINEER®, and Solidworks.
Autodesk Simulation CFD software enables you to make great products.
Not too long ago, the cost of performing high-level analysis and simulation was a complicated and costly process, that was rarely necessary. However, things have changed in today’s business climate, of being low-cost and highly competitive in this fast-paced world. We have to be able to iterate and improve designs quickly, with…
