Most used approach for optimal and safe design

At DesignTec we provide a variety of solutions to complex engineering problems applied in the design, assessment and optimization of a product or structure in mechanical and civil engineering, energetics, as well as geomechanics.


Structural Mechanics

Structural Statics and Stress Analysis

  • Geometrical nonlinearities (stress stiffening large displacements, large strains)
  • Material nonlinearities
  • Contacts

FE-result with mesh


  • Linear stability
  • Nonlinear stability (stress stiffening, geometrical and material nonlinearity, imperfections)

Structural Dynamics and Vibrations

  • Modal analysis and pre-stressed modal analysis
  • Harmonic analysis
  • Transient analysis
  • High velocity and impact analysis (explosions, crash, impacts, drop-tests)

Advanced Material Modeling

  • Metals, plastics, rubbers, foams, composites, fluid, reinforced concrete, fiber reinforced concrete, timber, soil and rock
  • Extensive failure and yield models
  • Time, rate and temperature dependent material properties
  • De-lamination, crack propagation
  • Creep, relaxation
  • Composite laminates with per ply definition

Heat flow

  • Linear and nonlinear steady state thermal analysis
  • Transient thermal analysis
  • Convection, radiation

Fluid flow through porous/fractured media

  • Steady state and transient groundwater flow through porous media (soils)
  • Steady state and transient groundwater flow through fractured media (rocks)
  • Saturated and unsaturated flow

Multidiscipline, Coupled and Chained Simulations

  • Structural-Thermal
  • Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI)
  • Hydraulic-Mechanical (geotechnics, consolidation)
  • Thermo-Hydraulic-Mechanical (radioactive waste disposal, geothermic energy resources, CO2 storage)
