Finite Element Analysis to predict stress and strain

Finite element analysis (FEA) is established in modern design to predict component response to forces and environmental conditions. With material properties, geometry, mechanical and thermal loads as inputs, FEAs determine failure points. CWST has developed an FEA model using input measurements of peened material to virtually design optimal peening that extends component fatigue lifetime and fatigue strength.
