We also offer the ability to perform standard ASME Section VIII, Division 1 Rules for the Construction of Pressure Vessels. Our FEA BPVC consultants have successfully completed a broad range of analysis work on hundreds of pressure vessels. These FEA pressure vessel consulting projects cover a wide variety of analyses, from differential thermal-stress analysis of heat exchangers utilizing mixed materials, to stress and fatigue analysis of large-diameter vessels, to analyses of vessels with complex internal structures subjected to sloshing, seismic and added-mass effects or lifting and transportation analyses and transient thermal-fatigue of thick-walled tanks.

It is capable of simulating complex real-world problems, and is widely accepted as the premier analysis software package for today's most challenging engineering applications. At Predictive Engineering, we are longtime experts in LS-DYNA software and can help you buy LS-DYNA and then guide you through the acquisition, licensing, installation, support and in-depth LS-DYNA training. We like to say that we don't sell LS-DYNA but we advocate LS-DYNA to clients where it will make them money.

read more › Our good friends at ANSYS-LST, makers of LS-DYNA, put this list together to present to their customers. We decided we liked it so much, we'd share it as well. Over 85% of Automotive companies worldwide are using LS-DYNA (and increasing with the recent switch of BMW to ANSYS LS-DYNA in 2020). LSTC and its distributors, at no additional fees, offer these methods/developments to be licensed to LS-DYNA global users/customers. 3. Dummy models used in crash simulations, that are developed by dummy manufacturers, are generally developed for LS-DYNA.

read more › George Laird's LS-DYNA Analysis for Structural Mechanics course is the most comprehensive and authoritative source for engineers looking for guidance on how to efficiently and confidently harness the tremendous power of LS-DYNA to solve some of the most complex problems facing engineering today. I can make this statement with confidence, having taken his course three separate times over the years. George evolves the course constantly. He updates his notes to reflect his evolving understanding of LS-DYNA, new approaches and features incorporated by the developers, and comments from previous course students, such as myself.

This video and workshop-led series provides an overview of the core analysis features used by LS-DYNA to simulate highly nonlinear static and dynamic behavior in engineered structures and systems. Our goal is to provide a self-taught yet realistic foundation toward the practical usage of LS-DYNA, similar to how our team has used it on hundreds of simulation projects.

Response spectrum analysis is widely used for the design and assessment of structures that are subject to earthquakes or shock events. The reason we want to use a response spectrum is that it allows us to analyze transient events (time based events) without having to review hundreds or thousands of results sets.

Saying that, knowing the answers to this quiz doesn't imply that one is capable of building accurate simulations, merely that one is heading in the right direction and has a good sense of humor. If you had one steel and one aluminum cylinder of equal cross-sectional areas (1 sq-in) and both cylinders are loaded with a force of 100 lbf, which cylinder will have the higher stress?

Our clients comprise critical industries such as Aerospace, Automotive, Electronics, Energy, Marine, Medical, Military & Defense, Rail and everyday Consumer Products. TITAN Metal Fabricators has had the pleasure of working with Predictive Engineering for more than 5 years. Predictive's team team has successfully completed multiple projects with an assortment of Design and Analysis problems, such as odd-geometry vessels and heat exchangers, large temperature gradient effects, and fatigue loading.

Here you will find a small sample of the projects we've completed over the past two decades. Passing the FAA 16g sled test is no trivial matter for highly optimized aluminum and composite airplane seats. Additionally, getting the anthropomorphic test device (ATD) to behave correctly is also a difficult task in any sled test simulation.

Even with an academic and experimental background in fatigue analysis, it is daunting to provide a hard, no-nonsense life-cycle prediction. Over the years, we have done a number of satellite analysis projects for commercial and those other government agencies.
