Finite Element Analysis

 

Finite Element Analysis consists of a computer model of a material or design that is stressed and analyzed for specific results. It is used in new product design, and existing product refinement. A company is able to verify a proposed design will be able to perform to the client's specifications prior to manufacturing or construction. Modifying an existing product or structure is utilized to qualify the product or structure for a new service condition. In case of structural failure, FEA may be used to help determine the design modifications to meet the new condition. Peter Widas - Introduction to Finite Element Analysis

Fleet Industrial Supply Center (FISC)

F-18 Bulkhead

Integrated Consultants, Inc. reverse engineered a damaged airplane bulkhead and delivered several replacement units.

ICI started with a damaged bulkhead and a number of conflicting and unorganized paper drawings. The bulkhead was reverse engineered into a 3D parametric model, and then this shape was compared to the supplied 2D prints. Inconsistencies were checked and resolved to create a final model of the desired part. This 3D file was used to create tool paths to run a CNC milling machine and produce the final parts.

Aereon Marine

M/Y REVERIE

The Reverie mega yacht, the 52nd largest private yacht in the world, underwent an extensive retrofit under Aereon Marine's care.

ICI took care of many different tasks for the retrofit.

A new, improved communications mast was designed and built. Deck cranes were analyzed to determine their weight ratings.

A new bridge with updated navigation instruments was designed and built. The entire yacht was modeled in 3D to aid in future work.

Aereon Marine

M/Y REVERIE Hinge

Aereon Marine's hinge supports watertight doors on the mega yacht Reverie.

ICI was given a broken hinge that had not been up to the task and has made significant improvements to the design.

Material choice has been improved and the link design has been changed for increased weight bearing capacity and slower wear.
