Finite element analysis


Finite element analysis (FEA) is a powerful tool, not only from a purely engineering point of view, but also from a cost perspective.


  • Hub deformation and elasticity
  • Hub and bearing cups interaction, under load and temperature conditions
  • Influence of the press fit
  • Deflection of the shaft and deformation of the bearing cones under load and clamping conditions
  • Optimization of the hub design (weight) considering afore-mentioned points
