PDL our markets

Widely recognised as being experts in Finite Element Analysis (FEA), PDL engineers have provided advanced FEA support on some of the most technically challenging projects to some of the most notable national and international entities.

Our FEA capabilities are delivered use the following toolsets:

  ABAQUS Structural FEA software (linear, non-linear and thermal)

  Altair HyperMesh

  Altair HyperWorks

  ANSYS® AutoDYN (dynamic blast and fragmentation)

  ANSYS® DesignModeler

  ANSYS® LS-DYNA FEA software (dynamic impact and penetration)

  ANSYS® Mechanical FEA software (linear, non-linear and thermal)

  ANSYS® Professional FEA software (linear)

  ANSYS® Structural FEA software (linear & non-linear)

  CAESAR II pipe stress analysis software

  STAAD Pro structural analysis software

PDL engineers continue to pioneer the development of new analysis methodologies and material models to give our clients even greater insight into the performance and the reliability of their products in accordance with the appropriate design codes. A recent example of this pioneering approach is the development of a fully validated 3D analysis methodology to determine the bending capacity of subsea connectors in accordance with the current ISO 13628-7 and emerging API 17G norms.
