Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Axiom has extensive experience and capabilities in the provision of finite element analysis.


We have two in-house ANSYS structural licences and can handle:

  • Linear
  • Non-linear
  • Thermal
  • Thermal Transient
  • Limit load 


FEA, as well as providing a powerful tool to undertake stress analysis of structures, can also enable us to undertake ‘design by analysis’ against the major national and international vessels codes.


We also use our FEA software to provide data that we post process for use in fitness for purpose assessments such as fatigue life and creep assessments.


We believe that in having an in-house FEA capability gives us an edge in the provision of engineering assessments.
