Engineering Simulation

A critical component to any design is validation. There are several ways that designs can be validated but a couple of the virtual methods that Matrix Engineering Consultants utilizes are Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD).

FEA can give virtual insight into the structural integrity of new designs before any capital is spent building parts. Not only can FEA show where new parts may have potential issues, it can be used to diagnose failures seen in the field, and also to optimize designs in order to reduce cost.

In cases where fluid flow is critical (either gas or liquid) CFD can be used to optimize flow and minimize turbulence, or to predict how two different liquids are mixing, etc. It can also be used in conjunction with FEA when a transfer of fluid causes a resultant force that needs to be considered when doing structural analysis. There are many types of engineering simulation and analyses that Matrix Engineering Consultants performs either as a stand-alone service or integrated into our projects.
