Finite Element Analysis

Design more Efficient

Going beyond Standards

 Finite Element Analysis is a way to figure out if a design works properly or not. Generally speaking, it challenges the facts the design might be prepared to respond to. There are a lot to know about any element reaction against different load cases and the way we can rely on simulations as FEA types but the most exciting part is to have the chance of checking different scenarios even before any physical experiment in multi-physics simulations.

 Any case in FEA, can be a chance to reduce material consumption even by a better function which we call it low material and high effect. This is actually what I prefer to call it Multi-Functional Paradigms which can be explored in Iranian Architecture as an analyzing layer much more validated in compare with just interpretation. In many cases both in academic and professional experiences we use FEA to figure out if our design works for or against parameters we wanted, in different situations.

 Ever since the FEA analysis has been set as a way to know how a design works, we used to analyze each time our design was upgrading. These studies helped us on some scenarios as well:

  • Glazing fraction against impact load
  • Detail design and load bearing on steels and special element
  • Glazing Engineering on huge facades as thermal behavior or structural mechanics
  • And everything related to Building Physics

Mashhad, Arman Complex

 The main issue in Arman was about thermal comfort in the main void which had to be set as a normal space by heat and humidity adapted to mechanical systems.
