Engineering Analysis

During the product design and development process, engineering analysis and testing provides a significant benefit to the manufacturer. By understanding how a design is likely to perform, breakdown, or potentially fail in different simulated conditions, parts and assemblies can be optimized before they are manufactured.

DISHER can perform the following types of analysis to improve your design, save time, reduce costs, and mitigate risk:

  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Static Analysis
  • Dynamic Analysis
  • Thermal Analysis
  • Nonlinear Analysis
  • Topology Optimization
  • Rigid Body Kinematics
  • Mold Flow Analysis
