Bracket FEA

Finite Element Analysis is used to determine the cause of failure, and to design a cost-effective solution.

Summary: In-plant failures can be costly: repairs, down-time, safety, etc.  Applied Kinetics works from first principles, using appropriate analysis techniques to determine root-cause.

Details: A client was experiencing unexpected failures of this cast component.  Since weight was critical , a thorough and optimized solution was needed.

Applied Kinetics analysed the loading situations with FEA to determine the magnitude and nature of the design defect.  Then, guided by the results of the analysis, a new, stronger, lightweight bracket was designed.
