FEA or Finite Element Analysis is a method of mechanical computer simulation used by our product development team to assess the load carrying capacity of Geographe manufactured parts. By highlighting potential weaknesses on a proposed design, multiple refinements can be made to improve the quality and increase the dependability of a product without the need for extensive prototyping. Ultimately, FEA allows Geographe to design products for optimum life and performance.

Assessing Load

Using FEA allows us to gain an insight into how parts will function under real-world conditions. FEA identifies points where stressors and deflections can occur in components and assemblies under specified loads. The calculations are performed with the aid of software called "Solidworks Simulation" that is used by Geographe in conjunction with "Solidworks 3D Models"

Prototypes and Testing

By highlighting potential weaknesses on a proposed design, multiple refinements can be made to improve the quality and increase the dependability of a product without the need for extensive prototyping.

FEA for Failure Analysis

FEA is commonly used to validate and analyse product designs when the component or assembly has failed and assessment must be conducted to determine how the failure occurred. This way, Geographe can determine improvements that can be made on the existing design.
