ABOUT Engineering Analysis
Technology: Engineering Analysis Services are design, evaluation, simulation, etc. services offered by engineering consultants and includes a variety of specialized endeavors such as computational fluid dynamics, finite element analysis, etc. There services are often dependent on the use of high-end engineering analysis software.Firms have mastery of sophisticated analytical software/tools through regular useGenerally have specialized engineers on staff, for example, CFD specialists, FEA specialistsCircumvent the need for physical product testing
Analysis services are performed for a variety of reasons including fatigue life estimating, failure analysis and prediction, design improvement, etc. Among the tools used are vibration analysis, stress analysis, dynamic analysis, and thermal analysis.
Analysis services are used for aerospace, electronics packaging, consumer products, automated machinery, electro-optical products, and medical devices, to name a few.
Advantages: Engineering analysis services can provide high-level quantitative results.
Limitations of Engineering Analysis ServicesCan be skewed heavily toward theory rather than focused on problem solvingMay be difficult to assess product quality/outcomes
Applications: Engineering analysis services are used in a variety of high level engineering tasks.Forensic engineeringFailure analysisOptimizationComponents in critical service
