Structural Mechanics

Structural testing and analysis is a basic requirement for engineers in every industry. In fact, the use of FEA for structural analysis has become so commonplace that some suggest it is “commodity technology” that can be selected on the basis of price. Smart engineering and CAE managers, however, are recognizing that price and cost are not synonymous. Choosing structural analysis solutions that can grow with your evolving needs, rather than become obsolete, leads to lower overall cost of ownership and the difference between a costly mistake and an achievement to be proud of.

Compumod provides a family of high performance solutions for structural FEA that meet the needs of beginning engineers and designers, experienced experts, and everyone in between. These solutions help companies meet their business challenges by helping engineers to develop deeper insight in their products through virtual testing. Engineers using Compumod’s structural analysis are able to evaluate many different types of designs, giving high confidence that the final design will successfully meet prescribed requirements, before the physical product is built. From single components to large complex systems, from linear static to highly non-linear dynamic problems, Compumod’s  structural analysis capabilities are built to grow with your business, optimize your cost of ownership, and support you in achieving your goals.
