Penso British Engineering

FEA Simulation

As a global leader in Finite Element Analysis (FEA), we are able to offer our clients an opportunity to see into the future by simulating how a product reacts to real-world forces including vibration, heat, fluid flow and other physical effects.

In other words, we can see whether a new solution will break, wear out or offer the performance expected of it…all without entering the expensive and timely prototype and development stage.

We have a team of twenty experienced engineering professionals dedicated to this capability, using a range of world leading software tools to create the answers to current and future requirements of clients in automotive, aerospace, defence, marine and rail.

Penso has strengthened its FEA capability even further by joining forces with BETA CAE Software Systems to offer access to its industry-leading ANSA and META products.

Typical simulation services include:

  • Frontal crash
  • Side crash
  • Rear impact
  • Door crush test
  • Roof crush test
  • Rollover
  • Numerical optimisations
