Simulation FEA / FEM Services

Professional in FEA Simulations, Mechanical - Structural Engineering & Design

Mechanical- Structural Analysis are often required for important parts or assemblies and constructions. We are specialized in analyzing / FEA simulations by using our skills and powerful simulation tools.


Do you have a question about the strength or stability of your product or machine parts, complex assemblies or custom designed structures?


With our tools, knowledge and skills, we analyze your design (3D CAD models) directly, efficiently and accurately detailed.

Why FEA Simulations by Vierhout Engineering?

  • Does your product, machine or construction meet the technical and safety requirements?

  • Do you have the Technical Construction File / Documentation / Report complete with detailed design calculations?

  • Can your product, machine or construction be designed more efficiently?

  • We cooperate and proactively contribute to the design and construction of your product.

  • We supply the technical documents and design review with results of the detailed simulations

  • We simulate and analyze your design efficiently and in detail using various innovative design 3D CAD tools and simulation software Altair SimSolid.

  • Directly using your designs and drawings (analyzes of detail 3D models and large assemblies without the usual simplifications of the FEA models and FEA analyzes). We can also work out the detailed 3D models and drawings as desired.

  • Your designs are managed securely under Nondisclosure / NDA.

  • Affordable competitive prices due to work efficiency and low overhead costs.

  • Efficient working method, possibly in collaboration and consultation with your engineers.

  • FEA simulations / analysis with the latest modern tools in the highest detailed report.

With Vierhout Engineering you are at the right place for detailed Simulations for your project.

Various terms of these Simulations are used; Mechanical / Structural Analysis, Simulation, FEA (Finite Element Analysis) / FEM (Finite Element Method).

We have the knowledge, skills and experience to complete your technical project successfully. You are in direct contact with the specialized engineer. We think and work flexibly in regard to customer wishes and the requirements set. We are SimSolid Professional licensed in which we efficiently and innovatively solve the technical issue in 3D and in high detail. We can start immediately with your 3D model, or else we can create it. Complex assemblies (large assemblies) are also no problem for us. You win a lot of time, energy and costs by our services. We are happy to assist you with this, contact us for the options and price request.

We offer;

  • Detailed, accurate, well-arranged and efficient analyzes including reporting at competitive prices.

  • Finite Element Methods and Analyzes / Construction Calculations / Strength Calculations (EEA / FEA / FEM & Meshfree methods).

  • For various projects; Machine constructions, from component level till large complex assemblies, machines and constructions, Steel constructions, Specials, Weldments, Frames, Piping, Prototyping,

  • Steel structures (if desired, check according to Eurocode 1, 3 / NEN-EN 1991, 1993).

  • Complex and custom connections are in most cases no problem to analyze in high detail.

  • Material Stresses (Von Mises)

  • Displacements 

  • Safety factors

  • Various analysis options:

  • Static and Dynamic (time) response analyzes

  • Natural frequencies (Modal analysis)

  • Various contacts, Friction contacts, welds, Linear & Non-linear

  • Materials Linear & Non-linear

  • Bolt / nut connections incl. Pre-stresses, friction and tightening torques.

  • Welding / welding calculations

  • Thermal load / Thermal Stress

  • Materials: Steel alloys, ferrous / non-ferrous, plastics

  • Do you have (3D solid / STEP) CAD models from a part, assembly or construction that needs to be analyzed for strength and stability? We can perform the analyzes for you effectively.

  • Without CAD models we can, of course, also elaborate this. Then we work out the 3D CAD models to your wishes.

  • We have the SimSolid Professional license. This simulation software is very innovative and has many advantages over the traditional finite element programs. Meshless analysis / Meshfree methods by using 3D solids with high accuracy is a big advantage in this. For example, complex parts and large assemblies (large assemblies) are no problem to analyze in detail and accurately.

  • Feel free to ask about the many options, we are happy to think along with you.
