Finite Element Modeling and Analysis

Main Content


Originally developed for aerospace structural analysis, Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is now a convenient and speedy tool for approximation of the solution to a wide variety of complicated engineering problems across a wide range of industries.  IMEL FEA modeling and simulation research capabilities include a full range of engineering applications to drive product designs from concept to product.  Dr. Chu has over a decade of finite element analysis experience and can solve your most difficult engineering analysis problems.  IMEL have extensive experience in many areas of engineering and analysis, including:

  • Structural Analysis (including composites)
  • Static, Dynamic, Modal & random vibration analysis (harmonic and impact)
  • Explicit Dynamics Analysis
  • Fatigue Analysis (including reliability and service life prediction)
  • Fracture mechanics and crack growth studies
  • Thermal Analysis
  • Heat Transfer, radiation, transient, non-linear material properties and impact analysis
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
  • Acoustics
