Multiphysics Finite Element Analysis
MSI performs multiphysics finite element analysis to understand the full performance of a system. For example, a predicted temperature field can be applied to a structural model to check how thermal growth affects stress. Magnetic fields result in eddy currents that generate heat which deforms structures. Acoustic cavity resonance can vibrate a structure to failure. Aerodynamics predicted in a computational fluid dynamics analysis cause external pressures on a wing that lead to structural deformation of the wing. MSI has the software tools and experience to address such complex interactions.
