Modern structural mechanics cannot be imagined without numerical methods. We primarily use the finite element method, in short FEM or FE analysis or FE simulation. A structure is divided into small areas. The structure-mechanical relationships can be formulated sufficiently precisely for an individual area. The mathematical merging of all areas leads to a system of equations that can be solved elegantly with the help of a computer.
We select the appropriate procedure for you in a targeted and secure manner. Our goal is a solid and economical solution to your question. Please also refer to our FAQ.
