Many Austrian companies are active in the field of plant engineering. Traditionally, structural analysis in this field relies on comparatively simple, analytical methods. Many companies, therefore, do not maintain their own simulation departments for more complicated structures, but rather outsource these special cases to external partners. In this context, it is paramount to handle assignments reliably, quickly, and efficiently, something that CAE Simulation & Solutions excels in. In the following, some topics from the field of plant engineering are listed. Often, the fatigue behavior of complex structures has to be assessed, which requires advanced methods and software.
