Engineering Modeling and FEA Analysis

Palmer Associates offers Finite Element Analysis for virtual testing of parts and structures. Our analysis capabilities can be used as an integral part of the whole machine design process. Plus it can also be used for failure analysis investigation of a single component.

When testing and analysis is incorporated into the design process, they provide a clear indication of potential problems…problems that can be corrected before costly production begins.

Using the latest modeling, analysis, and post-processing software, we offer static and dynamic analysis capability for complex assemblies such as bolted and gasketed connections and complex assemblies.

Though this computer analysis is most cost-effective when done at concept or design stage, it can also be conducted on an existing part to predict or determine failure. Our practical, design-oriented approach to problem solving provides rapid solutions to stress, deflection, heat transfer, and dynamic response problems. Beyond providing the results of an analysis, our evaluations, conclusions, and design recommendations help you to produce the best product in the shortest time.

“In the Global Product Innovation group at O-I, we commissioned Palmer Associates to develop a test instrument that would allow us to quantify product innovation. The team at Palmer worked with us to define a scope and list of critical deliverables that would meet the needs of the project, but we had a hardware/software prerequisite we wanted to incorporate into the instrument. Palmer had no previous experience with our choice of HW/SW, but embraced the challenge. Marv and his team at Palmer were creative and persistent through the invention and concept phase; swift and efficient through the execution phase and comprehensive through the validation phase. The project is now complete, patents are pending and customers of O-I are engaged with this new capability thanks, in large part, to the team at Palmer.”
