Seals and Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
FEA is a well-established software-based calculation method to simulate how objects behave when exposed to physical forces and other influences.
We use FEA for e.g. design purposes and quality assurance of our solutions. For instance, FEA makes us able to investigate pressure, temperature, sliding speed, metal surface finish, fluids, fluid contamination and chemical issues which have or may have impact on the performance of the sealing system. Based on the findings and results, our engineers can minimize or eliminate non-functional possiblities and suggest the best design and materials without having to conduct full-scale testing.
We are using Marc Advanced Nonlinear Simulation Solution from MSC Software for the purpose.
