Static and Dynamic Analysis

Depending on the load case or mobile equipment operation, DJHEC is able to determine whether a static or dynamic simulation is appropriate to properly characterize the event. A large portion of load case events can be characterized and simplified as static or quasi static but certain require dynamic simulations to properly capture the energy propagation through the structure.

On multiple occasions, we have observed customers who have over simplified dynamic loading events with static analysis. In this scenario, over simplification will propagate error in the results by neglecting the time or frequency varying load scenario. DJHEC can perform dynamic analysis simulated as transient (time dependent involving material or geometry nonlinearity), implicit (slow events with low frequencies), or explicit (high velocity events with wave propagation).  Contact DJHEC to review and assess your needs.
