- Finite element stress analysis (FEA)
- Deflection analysis
- Fatigue prediction
- Modal analysis
- Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
- FEA for structural & thermal analysis
ATI’s analysts are senior, experienced product engineers. They are capable of modeling nearly any static or dynamic situation, by combining engineering theory, product knowledge, and state of the art software packages.
ATI is expert at integrating technologies, components, and systems into larger systems or vehicles. Our engineers and designers utilize our design and analysis tools along with their knowledge of vehicle systems and field performance requirements to help our customers integrate their concepts.
ATI utilizes the HEEDS optimization package to set up and conduct complex analyses that employ multiple FEA and CAD software packages. The search algorithm specific to HEEDS enables ATI’s engineers to intelligently conduct broad, efficient searches for optimized designs.
These designs are based on variables and responses generated by the team at ATI. ATI arrives at an optimized solution by exploring design combinations comprised of the design geometry, attributes, and characteristics.
By utilizing engineering tools, the design combinations tie together with HEEDS to search the design space. HEEDS automates the evaluation process and executes the analysis numerous times, each time adjusting design variables until an optimum solution is obtained.
