Mechanical and Thermal Analysis

NSA will perform cost effective linear and non-linear finite element analysis of structures, tools, and mechanisms including:

Structural Analysis

  • Static and dynamic analysis
  • Structural Stability
  • Plasticity in Design
Thermal Analysis
  • Transient
  • Steady State
  • Thermal Radiation
Failure Analysis
  • Creep and Fatigue
  • Cracked Structures
  • Buckling Analysis
  • Contact (Sealing)
Performing a mechanical analysis during the design phase of equipment development can provide cost-saving information on tool and component configuration as well as proper material selection for increased reliability and life. Identify the design challenges before they become problems.

Failures can also be analyzed to determine probable cause and an assessment of remaining life. Determining the root cause of a failure allows the design to be revised and ensures greater reliability.

COSMOS/M is a general-purpose finite element analysis program that has been used by our analysts for over 15 years. It has provided reliable results in all analyses from the simple to the very complex.
