About Structural Mechanics

Demcon multiphysics offers consultancy in a wide range of structural analysis topics. We are experienced in the area of ​​strength & stiffness calculations of complex structures or the response of a structure or mechanical system to harmonic external forcing.

In addition, the prediction of plastic deformations, buckling or the mechanical interaction of parts is part of our portfolio. Especially when problems are complex and cooperation with Demcon multiphysics is initiated early on in the design process, high costs for redesign can be avoided. We have profound experience with the following topics:

  • Vibrations and fatigue modelling i.a. of rotating equipment
  • Broad experience with high accuracy systems calculations up to Pico meter precision
  • Thermal induced stresses and deformations
  • Deformations caused by contact forces
  • Strength calculations of large-scale objects
  • Extensive know-how in material specific modelling
  • Strength and stiffness
  • Plastic deformation, creep and buckling
  • Dynamic analysis (evaluation and improvement of eigenvalues and vibrations, modal analysis and harmonic response)
  • Linear and non-linear material behavior, stress and strain
  • Rigid body dynamics

Possibly the most common question in the area of solid mechanics is the determination of the strength and/or stiffness of a part and its vibrational behavior. The prediction of how much a part will deform under load, or even fail, is almost always of critical importance. Especially when weight reduction, costs or dimensional restraints are important, a thorough simulation of the static and/or dynamic behavior can provide a substantial contribution. The performance of expensive, high risk and lengthy experiments can then be avoided. Demcon multiphysics is highly experienced with the execution of these types of Finite Element Analysis (FEA / FEM) and has specially outfitted calculation systems to perform these types of calculations as efficient as possible.

About Demcon multiphysics

Demcon multiphysics is an engineering agency with high-end expertise in the area of heat transfer, fluid dynamics, structural mechanics, acoustics and electromagnetism. We support clients from a wide variety of market sectors such as the process industry, semiconductor industry, oil & gas, maritime sector, heat exchanger applications and medical applications. With deep physical insights we aim to help you achieve your goals in research, development and engineering programs.

We combine fundamental physical knowledge from an analytical approach with Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) simulations tools from ANSYS, MATHWORKS, and COMSOL to setup, execute, analyze and evaluate numerical simulations.
The use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Finite Element Analysis (FEM / FEA), Lumped Element Modelling (LEM) and Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) enables us to make a virtual prototype of your design. With these techniques we can simulate the fluid and gas flows, energy exchange, heat and mass transfer, stresses, strains and vibrations in structures and the interaction of electromagnetic fields with other physical aspects like heat generation. This way of simulation-driven development increases the developments efficiency and reduces the
product development time. Our services can therefore fully support you
in the designing phase, from idea up to prototype.
