FEA is a type of computer program that uses the finite element method to analyse a material or object and find how applied stresses will affect the material or design. FEA can help determine any points of weakness in a design before it is manufactured
Non-linear contact analysis of mooring chain to calculate strength and fatigue life failure.
Gradual load increment for a nonlinear analysis considering contact and material nonlinearity. Failure load and safe working load for the chain was calculated based on amount of plastic strain developed.
FPSO chain tensioner analysis for strength assessment.
Strength and fatigue assessment of a pipeline connector clip using nonlinear contact and plastic material properties.
Nonlinear contact analysis of a joint diverter for strength assessment.
