Finite Element Analysis

NEL offers a full range of Finite Element Analysis (FEA) consultancy services to the oil and gas industry as well as other sectors.

NEL has over 3 decades of experience delivering projects for the oil and gas industry, which means you can trust us to add value to your business.  NEL staff are able to quickly understand your modelling requirements and provide quotes for time critical projects.  Our structural analysis experience and physical testing capabilities allow NEL to stand out from other engineering consultancies.

NEL use ANSYS Mechanical and SOLIDWORKS Premium to ensure the highest quality modelling results are achieved.

ANSYS Mechanical is a comprehensive Finite Element Analysis tool for structural analysis studies.  ANSYS Mechanical can be used to model the following physics:

  • Linear
  • Non Linear
  • Dynamic

NEL’s Finite Element Analysis team has a vast array of experience in the following areas:

  • Thermal Stress Analysis
  • Frequency Analysis
  • Fatigue
  • Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI)
  • Impact Analysis

NEL are also involved in developing models which can be used to analyse eroded pipe work, valves and other components (erosion calculated using our CFD Software) to determine whether the pipe's integrity would be affected. This is particularly important for high pressure gas applications where structural integrity is critical.
