Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

CENTINO does structural Finite Element Analyses of new and existing products, structures and other load bearing elements.

Finite Element Analyses provided by CENTINO support a design process and make it possible to determine the stresses and displacements of structures. Obtained results together with Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) help to optimize structures and their shapes, e.g. by reducing their weights.

We use NASTRAN for our calculations.
