LASSO's specialty is the analysis of general problems of strength by applying the Finite Element Method (FEM). The linear and nonlinear FEM offer a large spectrum of algorithms for treating different aspects of structural behaviour.
FEM-Analysis requires the following input data
- The geometrical description based on drawings or CAD-data
- Material data
- Kinematic boundary conditions
- Loading conditions
LASSO provides a quotation which includes a complete FEM-analysis. The amount of work required and the input data is determined in close partnership with the customer. The components of an FEM-analysis are divided into three parts: modelling, numerical analysis and documentation of results.
A written final report, including colour pictures, is delivered to the customer. Small animated movies can also be produced for presentation on a PC or a VCR. This report is also archived on CD-ROM, so there is permanent direct access to the data at the customer's site.
