Finite element analysis (FEA) modelling is used within research projects across much of NPL. Our FEA capabilities are used to:
Some examples of this research include:
We have experience in using multi-physics, multi-scale, and in some case multi-package, approaches to solve challenging scientific problems. Recent relevant work includes:
In addition to our FE capabilities, we have experience with finite difference, finite volume and boundary element techniques. We also have an ongoing interest in emerging techniques such as meshless methods, the extended finite element method and the Lattice Boltzmann method.
