WELCOME TO ITB –
YOUR ENGINEERING COMPANY FOR TECHNICAL CALCULATIONS!

Partner for FEM – Competence in detail

With enthusiasm and extensive experience in a wide range of applications for technical calculation, we solve our customers’ tasks in a goal-oriented manner and within budget. We have continuously evolved since our company was founded in Dortmund in 2004, establishing ourselves both in Germany and internationally as a reliable, flexible and innovative project partner, for technical calculation using FEM-simulation and strength assessments as the basis for a wide variety of developments.

The core competence of our company is the implementation of FEM-simulation and strength verifications according to guidelines.

 

What exactly is a FEM-simulation

The finite-element-method (FEM) is a numerical process in which components are subdivided into individual, analytically describable sub-areas, so-called finite elements. In this way, the load status of any components and load situations can be calculated independently of analytical approaches. In the area of ​​structural mechanics, deformations, elongations and mechanical stresses in the component can be determined. In the area of ​​thermodynamics, temperatures, thermal gradients and the heat flow in the component are results. In addition, the FEM-simulation can also be used in the field of fluid mechanics or electronics and all disciplines can be considered coupled, which brings significant advantages, especially for non-linear effects.

 

What benefits can a FEM-simulation have for you

In general, an FEM-simulation is used to calculate the loading capacity of a component. This can be determined for static as well as for cyclic or recurring loads. This means that it can be determined early in the development whether a design can withstand the requirements. With this knowledge, the testing effort in the development phase can be significantly reduced and the component can be optimized for the respective load situation. With a strength verification, we can ensure the admissibility of the design for you in accordance with industry-specific guidelines.
