Our analysis capability has proven time and time again to save development and subsequent testing dollars by providing quick, timely, and accurate answers to complex structural and thermal problems before they happen. PDA provides analysis services in the areas of:

  • Static structural analysis

  • Dynamic structural analysis for both linear and non-linear materials

  • Thermal analysis

  • Thermal stress analysis

  • Cooling

  • Power analysis

We primarily use two different software packages for our analysis work. NASTRAN is typically used for our linear static and dynamic problems while ERMC is used for thermal and nonlinear structural situations. Our analysis capability can save your time and money by giving you quick and accurate answers to complex problems early in the development process.


A simple example of thermal testing analysis.

Units we test are often made of many components with different thermal tolerances and reactions.
