Verify Product Performance

Finite Element Analysis methods are fundamental in today’s engineering world, playing an ever increasing role in the design of mechanical structures. The testing of physical structures plays an equally important role in design by measuring and quantifying a structure’s behavior. Quartus leverages its cross-disciplinary experience in design, analysis, and testing methods to deliver solutions to a wide variety of problems. Quartus can develop and perform all aspects of your test, or we can augment your staff to help with test setup, data acquisition, data processing, or model correlation. Let us help you deliver a smarter, faster solution through the integration of the virtual and physical worlds.

Plan Effectively to Maximize Information

Quartus uses advanced engineering techniques to optimally select sensor types and location, maximizing the quality of test data while minimizing the impact on your projects schedule. Before the test, engineers use analysis methods to predict the response of the structure, providing a road map to the most valuable sensor locations. Data collected at these optimal sensor locations can then be correlated to theoretical models of the structure, allowing engineers to fully understand the boundary conditions and physical responses of the structure. All test procedures are documented in a clear test plan outlining goals, locations, and metrics for success.
