Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Improve product design by simulating complex thermal and structural problems before prototyping

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is the practical application of a mathematical method (FEM - Finite Element Method) to model complex structural and thermal problems. FEA enables simulation and is especially useful for structural and thermal analysis. The computed FEA results allow you to optimize your designs, by making changes and then easily re-running the various analyses. Incorporating simulation software early in the design process will help reduce the need for costly prototypes and late-stage design changes as well as improve product performance, longevity, reliability and safety.

Creo Simulation Live!
Creo Simulation Live is a tool coming to Creo CAD software that lets engineers perform simulation in real time on a parametric model. “So every time you make a change in your model, you’ll see the consequences instantaneously in the modeling environment,” says Brian Thompson, SVP CAD Segment at PTC, in the video below.

Creo Simulate
Creo Simulate gives you the power to evaluate structural and thermal product performance on your digital model before resorting to costly, time-consuming physical prototyping. When you have early insight into product behavior, you can greatly improve product quality while saving time, effort and money.

Creo Advanced Simulate
PTC Creo Advanced Simulation Extension expands the capabilities
of PTC Creo Simulate and allows the study of how advanced, nonlinear effects should influence the product design.

Mechanism Design (Motion Analysis)
The creation and refinement of mechanisms needed for a specific application or product assembly can be optimized with the use of Creo Mechanism Design Option.

Human Factors (Manikin) Analysis
Add a digital manikin into your 3D CAD model using the PTC Creo Manikin Extension, and start analyzing human-product interaction scenarios. Test your designs against a number of quantitative human factors, as well as workplace standards and guidelines.

Fatigue Analysis
With PTC Creo Fatigue Advisor Extension, you can easily estimate the number of load cycles your model can sustain before failure. PTC Creo Simulate and PTC Creo Fatigue Advisor Extension have the same user interface, workflow and productivity tools that are standard throughout the PTC Creo family. The combination of PTC Creo Simulate and PTC Creo Fatigue Advisor can be used as a standalone application or as an extension of PTC® Creo® Parametric™.

Behavioral Modeling
Creo Behavioral Modeling Extension (BMX) delivers three key capabilities: design studies, smart models, and an open environment that uses calculated results from external programs. Creo BMX automatically determines the best design for you and supports design optimization.

Creepage & Clearance Analysis
Creo Clearance and Creepage Extension helps you automate electrical clearance and creepage analyses of 3D designs. The Creo Clearance and Creepage Extension is the only solution that can help improve the speed and accuracy of your analysis.

Tolerance Analysis
With Creo Tolerance Analysis Extension (TAE) powered by CETOL Technology, design engineers gain powerful tolerance analysis capabilities within their design environment. You can easily analyze, visualize, and understand the geometric tolerance stack-up and dimensional variation that impacts your design.

Creo Simulation Live!

What if your 3D CAD software could provide you with real-time feedback on your designs decisions, reacting to changes as you make them? Creo Simulation Live makes this a reality, providing guidance on the thousands of decisions you make throughout the development process.  This fast, easy-to-use tool provides instant feedback in the modeling environment, so you can create better designs.

Human Factors Analysis

Enables you to visualize, simulate, optimize and communicate these human-product interactions earlier in the design process, helping you save time and reduce product development costs.

Fatigue Analysis

Creo Fatigue Advisor Extension enables you to bolster product reliability by simulating and improving the fatigue performance of your design before you build a single prototype. You can improve product quality, reduce after-market service and warranty expenses, and avoid costly product recalls and their impact on your brand.

Behavioral Modeling

Creo Behavioral Modeling Extension (BMX) delivers three key capabilities: design studies, smart models, and an open environment that uses calculated results from external programs. Creo BMX automatically determines the best design for you and supports design optimization.

Creepage & Clearance Analysis

With Creo Clearance and Creepage Extension (CCX), you can automate the analysis directly on the digital model, get visual feedback, clearly identify product safety issues, and easily investigate violations in the results window.

Tolerance Analysis

With Creo Tolerance Analysis Extension (TAE) design engineers gain powerful tolerance analysis capabilities within their design environment. You can analyze, visualize, and understand the geometric tolerance stack-up and dimensional variation that impacts your design.

Mechanism Design (Motion Analysis)

Creo Mechanism Dynamics Option (MDO), gives you extended capabilities to design and test mechanisms under real-world stresses. You can simulate the forces and accelerations in the moving components of assemblies and also incorporate dynamic influences such as springs, motors, friction, and gravity.
