Simulation and FEM analysis

MI-Partners has advanced software tools to simulate a variety of physical phenomena. By using customized tools for generation of commonly used Ansys code, even complex systems can be modelled fast and cost-efficient.

Available simulation software
  • Ansys mechanical for static, dynamic and thermal FEM calculations.


  • Ansys CFD (Fluent and CFX) for thermofluid dynamics FEM calculations.


  • Ansys Maxwell for electromagnetic FEM calculations.


  • MSC Adams for multibody dynamics simulations.


  • Matlab Simulink and Simscape with various toolboxes for general physical modelling.


  • Library of custom tools for fast, cost-efficient modelling of dynamics and thermomechanics in Ansys and Matlab.


Example: Dynamics and control simulation
  • Determining the eigenfrequencies and mode shapes of complex mechanical structures with Ansys Mechanical.


  • Simulation includes bearing elements, actuators and sensors.


  • Resulting transfer functions from actuators to sensors are imported in Matlab, controllers are tuned on simulated dynamics.


  • Closed loop performance of this machine can be evaluated in Matlab.
