ITI uses a three-pronged approach to structural analysis. First, sophisticated Finite Element Analysis (FEA) is used to predict structural behavior. Second, when possible analytical solutions are obtained to verify the results of the FEA. Third, mechanical testing is performed to validate the FEA and analytical solution accuracy. This process ensures that ITI’s designs perform as expected. We ensure that every design is able to cope with unforeseen circumstances. A minimum safety factor of 2.0 is used in all designs. When desired or required, a higher safety factor can be provided. Large safety factors ensure that every product performs as designed despite material inconsistencies, manufacturing inconsistencies, shipping and handling damage, and other forms of abuse that may occur. Structural engineering involves advanced engineering concepts and high standards of application; our team delivers on challenging requirements.  

ITI can perform structural analysis for the following:

  • Composite (fiberglass/carbon fiber) structures
  • Steel, aluminum, and plastic parts
  • System/Connection assemblies
  • Steel structures
  • Concrete structures

ITI can also provide analysis for parts, systems, and buildings including:

  • Stress analysis
  • Buckling analysis
  • Geometry optimization
  • Vibration analysis
  • Seismic analysis
  • Foundation analysis
