Finite Element Analysis of a Concept Filter

Menatech Limited was been recruited to perform an advanced FEA analysis of a concept filter design. The goal of the study was the minimisation and optimisation of material thicknesses whilst retaining maximum deflection and stress allowances.

This goal of the study was achieved using a combined shell/solid analysis in Solidworks Simulation (our in house software). Several designs were tested and the results of each compiled into a report. The end result facilitated the development of high quality, low weight filters in duplex steel quality at a cost competitive to that of inferior mild-steel products.
