Valmont West Coast Engineering / FEA Engineering is a well known name in the Finite Element Analysis (F.E.A.) community. Through its extensive research and development programs, and, the implementation of complex Numerical Simulations, FEA Engineering has been able to set up a unique Virtual Laboratory for testing and optimizing its products.
Using the numerical simulation software, our engineers set up standard modeling and analysis procedures, which help us to optimize and realistically predict the behavior of any type of free standing or guyed structure including antenna, transmission or wind mill towers.
Using advanced nonlinear numerical simulations we are able to predict with a high degree of precision, the stress distribution in complicated welded flanged connections, or, around cutouts in the structure’s shaft.
We can also simulate the behavior of free standing structures under dynamically induced loads such as: ground motion, wind gusts, impact of broken wire on transmission structures, and blades in motion combined with ground motion for wind mill structures.
Another industrial domain where FEA Engineering employs numerical simulation is the machine design field. In the pole manufacturing area FEA Engineering is the only company which conceived, designed, and built a roll forming machine for multi-sided tapered poles. This extremely complicated cold roll forming process was analyzed and optimized using our in house nonlinear numerical simulation capabilities.
For more than eight years numerical simulation has been an integral part of our design process, helping us to build better products for the benefit of our customers.
Let's talk . . .
We look forward to discussing the tangible benefits your company can realize by letting us perform these specific and highly complicated analyses for you. In every case to date, our outside clients have experienced the benefit of reliable results without the associated costs of allocating in-house engineers to the project, buying very expensive software, training, or hiring new staff.
