Engineering and Simulation Services

CorteX Precision Technology offers services in the design of structures and mechanisms to optimize your car’s potential.

Simulation services can help you find your “unfair advantage.”

Finite Element Analysis

jongbloed-305_stress02_blackWe use Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA) to create highly optimized, light, yet extremely durable parts. FEA can be used to accurately model the behaviors of structures under a variety of conditions. In a nutshell, FEA allow a trained engineer to both lighten and strengthen a component. Low stress (blue colored) areas of a component can be lightened while high stress (yellow to red colored) regions require reinforcement. High stress could mean a part this is not very stiff, a short service life, or even catastrophic failure. More FEA info:

Kinematic simulation tools are used to solve simple and complex mechanism challenges. These tools are extremely useful in determining loads and generating complex motion profiles. Kinematic simulation tools provide statistical and graphical representations of mechanisms that aid in the design decision process. 

Ultimately kinematic simulation results can be combined to provide loads for the FEA model. This allows CorteX to harness the power of modern computer aided engineering (CAE).
