Structural Analysis

Vipac use Finite Element (FE) and other analysis methods in conjunction with 3D CAD modelling to provide workable design solutions. Detailed analysis tools include ANSYS FE software for structural analysis, LS-Dyna for complex non-linear problems, SolidWorks CAD software, VA One for vibro-acoustics as well as Matlab and Simulink for system level simulations and in-house thermal analysis software.

Vipac’s modelling capability includes non-linear materials and geometry, dynamic simulations such as shock, random and harmonic excitation, as well as vibro-acoustic and thermal environmental loads. These techniques are combined with traditional stress analysis methods to provide fully validated structural designs.
