Designing equipment with finite element analysis

Finite element analysis is a computer design method used by equipment manufacturers in many industries, including bulk solids handling. The method can be used to design irregularly shaped equipment and can produce more cost-effective designs than conventional methods. If you design bulk solids handling equipment or specify equipment for your company, you can find information in this article on how finite element analysis works and factors to consider in using the method. Related items discuss how finite element mesh size affects the analysis and how others in the bulk solids handling industry view the method.

Finite element analysis is widely used by the automobile, aircraft, and nuclear power industries to design complex, intricately shaped items ranging from engine parts to nuclear reactors. In the bulk solids handling industries, finite element analysis is used to design structural components and equipment ranging from heat exchangers to rotary railcar dumpers.
