The finite element analysis (FEA) method is used to model and approximate physical phenomenon through the use of partial differential equations. Engineers apply the finite element method (FEM) through using FEA computer software which provides critical insight into a design’s performance prior to physical testing.
Do you have an idea that you’re looking to protect? If your answer is yes, then you should be looking at filing a patent. In order to file a patent with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) you will first want at least one patent drawing (aka a patent illustration).
Successful product development can be a struggle for many startups and established companies. A products success is largely dependent on a development teams ability to achieve the highly sought after product/market fit. With new products it is far more often that the established market champion is the first brand that attains product/market fit and not the first mover. When it comes to finding product/market fit there are 7 product variables that you can fluctuate and iterate on until you obtain an optimal balance. These variables include price, performance, quality, functionality, ergonomics/ease of use, manufacturability, and marketability.
More structures are requiring blast resistance than ever before. Blast resistance allows a structure to withstand an explosion while keeping occupants safe. Terrorist threats have been increasing the demand to design critical structures, landmarks, and even personal bunkers for blast resistance.
It’s no secret that rockets are extremely powerful. Launch thrusts are as high as 5,100,000 lbf (Falcon Heavy by SpaceX) for today’s rockets and 13,900,000 lbf (BFR by SpaceX) for rockets under development.
