SOTO utilises FEA for structural/thermal assessment of mechanical components, structures and footings/foundations incorporating metal alloys, reinforced & pre/post tensioned concrete, soil, refractory and Fibre Reinforced Plastics (FRP) composite materials. SOTO provides the following FEA simulation capabilities:

  • Linear/non-linear analysis (deflection, material & contact)
  • Buckling analysis (linear/non-linear)
  • Static/dynamic structural analysis including natural frequency, harmonic (vibration), spectral response (seismic) & transient (shock/impact & blast)
  • Steady state/transient heat transfer analysis
  • Fatigue life assessment (stress/strain life)
  • Time dependent high temperature creep failure assessment
  • Staged construction sequencing.

SOTO utilises the following FEA simulation software:

  • ANSYS Mechanical/NLS
  • Autodesk Simulation
  • SAP 2000
  • Space Gass
  • Strand7.

We draw on extensive theoretical and practical expertise/experience in the application of FEA, with numerous team members having previous involvement in the development of FEA software and the provision of technical support/training services to users. SOTO employs best practice application of FEA to provide practical solutions to a diverse range of real world engineering problems.
