Neumann Engineering


Finite Element Analysis

Simulate, analyse, and optimise your project.

Whether you need to assess a new project or perform failure analysis for an existing one, our advanced Finite Element Analysis (FEA) captures the data you need. Using cutting-edge technology and FEA expertise, we provide accurate information about how complex structures behave under real-world conditions. Through this service, we make sure your designs are safe, cost-effective, and meet compliance standards.

Optimise Projects for Real-world Conditions Before They’re Built

  • Improve performance
  • Achieve precise failure analysis
  • Reduce warranty issues
  • Decrease manufacturing costs
  • Optimise material
  • Meet compliance standards

What is FEA?

FEA is a method that accurately predicts how a product or structure will react to real-world factors such as force, vibration, movement, heat, and fluid flow. Our FEA simulation technology and expertise gives you precise and powerful insights into whether your product or structure will perform the way it’s intended.

How Can You Use FEA Engineering?

We’ve used FEA for structural projects and products to help a variety of businesses optimise their engineering designs with powerful results. It can also be used to efficiently perform failure analysis to determine where something went wrong. FEA is an incredibly valuable tool for industries ranging from mining to marine, agriculture, industrial, and water supply.

FEA engineering is ideal for:

  • Product development 
  • Structural and mechanical engineering design 
  • Manufacturing processes 
  • Optimising existing designs 
  • Failure analysis

Improve Product Performance
Our FEA engineering creates a clear picture of how your product or structure would perform in different real-world scenarios and conditions. This gives you the power to identify issues or opportunities to optimise before it is built.
  • Simulate failure due to cyclic loading 
  • Identify areas susceptible to potential cracking 
  • Simulate potentially dangerous or destructive load cases 
  • Identify design weaknesses  
  • Optimise product design 
Achieve Precise Failure Analysis
If a failure has occurred, we can quickly identify the source of the problem with precision. We’re here to help you get back to business faster and keep operations running smoothly. Our experts also complete failure analysis on new designs to remove any issues before manufacturing begins.
Reduce Warranty Issues
Reduce the risk of product recalls and minimise warranty costs by accurately predicting issues before your product is built. By simulating the behaviour of products and structures under different loading and environmental conditions, our FEA engineers can identify potential failure points.
Decrease Manufacturing Costs
With FEA you can reduce the costs of physical prototypes and reduce development time. We can model various designs and test different materials using virtual prototypes in hours rather than weeks. By conducting earlier testing in the manufacturing process, our FEA engineering saves a significant amount of time and reduces complexity.
Optimise Materials

Our consulting engineers use FEA to provide comprehensive results about physical stress concentration and deflection. Leveraging the power of our expertise and FEA technology, we can help you achieve more cost-effective designs and higher quality products.

Meet Local and International Compliance Standards
Make sure your product or structure meets all relevant standards and requirements. We use advanced FEA technology and our deep industry knowledge to identify and solve any issues before physical prototypes are built.

Finite Element Analysis vs. First Principle Calculations

FEA offers 4 key advantages over first principle calculations:
  • Precise physical stress results: Comprehensive result sets that show the physical stress concentration and actual deflection of the product or structure. 
  • Accurate safety tests: Ability to simulate potentially dangerous or destructive load cases. 
  • Strategic and reliable analysis: Reduce weight by eliminating material in areas where stresses are low. 
  • Accurately identify weaknesses: Simulate failure due to cyclic loading and identify areas susceptible to potential cracking due to fatigue. 


To unlock the full power of FEA engineering, our experts take a systematic and collaborative approach. We work closely with your business to understand your goals and unique requirements, then complete a detailed analysis of your product or structure using simulation technology.
Standalone Service or as Part of Our Solutions
We provide FEA as a standalone service, as well as using it across our other engineering solutions.
Types of FEA Tests

To gather accurate information about the various factors that could impact a product or structure, our engineers use a range of tests. These include FEA structural static analysis for scaled models, thermal engineering analysis to explore the impact of temperature variations, modal analysis to assess how vibrations will affect the design, and non-linear static analysis to see real world performance of material before and after we apply loads.

FEA Specialists

Our consulting engineers are specialised in FEA, optimising designs for factors such as capacity, longevity, and costs based on realistic outputs. We also use this analysis to verify compliance with the relevant Australian standards.

Cutting-edge Technology

Using FEA effectively relies on understanding the technology inside-out as well as the industries it is serving. Neumann Engineering invests in cutting-edge technology and a team of top-tier engineers who have worked across a range of projects and industries.


Lindsay Hart

NCI engaged Neumann Engineering Services to deliver a custom diesel hydraulic drum winch specifically designed for cable hauling. The machine was designed and manufactured to meet our unique requirements for speed control and tension monitoring and the team at NCI could not be happier with the level of technical expertise shown during the design process and with the high quality engineering solution provided. The winch has proven to be a reliable asset, being proven in arduous underground tunnelling conditions
