Structural Mechanics - Finite Element Method

Structural Mechancis (FEM)

The numerical simulations in structural mechanics aim at studying the rigidity (through the computation of the stresses) and the instabilities (through the computation of the deformations) of  structures and components subjected to various mechanical actions (stress, pressure, temperature, acceleration, sinusoidal or random excitation …).

Sizing criteria

Mechanical dimensioning is carried out using specific rules established by theory and feedback based on the type of application. These rules are laid down in design and construction codes such as EUROCODES, RCC-M, CODAP or ASME. Sizing can be done analytically or numerically depending on the complexity of the structures to be studied.
