Numerical analysis is used to investigate the stresses experienced by tooling, lifting apparatus and components during use. Both analytical solutions and finite element simulations are used to calculate stresses and factors of safety. In doing so, regions of high stress can be identified and changes made to reduce stresses to acceptable values.
Sheffield Forgemasters RD26 can offer:
- Analysis of forging tools
- Analysis of forgings/castings in use
- Stress resulting from temperature/phase change during manufacture
