Advanced Solutions to Engineering Problems

Advanced Solutions to Engineering Problems

Today's complex engineering world calls for advanced solutions. With increased design and analysis complexities, new tools are required to solve problems. Burns & McDonnell's Engineering Simulation Group can help you reach these solutions through computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and finite element analysis (FEA) simulation. We use the latest version of ANSYS to model and simulate complex systems with realistic outcomes.

The combination of Burns & McDonnell's history of high-quality engineering and 40 years of advanced engineering simulation tools from ANSYS creates a powerful advantage. Our engineers approach problems with an owner's mindset, targeting client satisfaction. ANSYS is a package of software tools, each tailored to accomplish specific goals. The divide-and-conquer approach keeps modeling efficient and avoids overcomplexity. The Engineering Simulation Group has a top-tier selection of packages from ANSYS, providing comprehensive CFD and FEA analysis services.

CFD Solutions

Computational fluid dynamics can solve a host of complicated fluid problems. From flow velocities to convective heat transfer, any fluid can be modeled using this software. Our well-prepared team is trained to employee these tools with timely and accurate solutions to your problems.

FEA Solutions

Finite element analysis can provide accurate solutions to complex solid mechanics problems. Whether it's high strain in a support or a vibration issue on a pipe, our solution can limit or even eliminate the need for costly field test models and stop trial and error.

Our ANSYS CFD software packages can provide solutions to a number of divisions of fluid, including:

  • Velocity
  • Pressure
  • Temperature
  • Heat transfer
  • Fluid flow patterns
    • Fluid in vessels and reactors 
    • Ventilation in buildings
    • Particle tracking
    • Plume dispersion
    • Deformation

    Our ANSYS FEA software packages can provide solutions to a number of divisions of solid mechanics, including:

  • Vibration
  • Stress
  • Strain
  • Heat transfer
    • Deflection
    • Deformation
    • Fatigue analysis
    • Thermal expansion
