Finite Element Method I FEM Services

Specialists for simulations and calculations

FE simulation not only makes the development process much faster and more efficient, it also significantly improves product quality.

If you do not have your own simulation department or would like to outsource particularly large and complex CAE projects for capacity reasons, we can support you as an engineering office specializing in simulation across the entire process chain or by taking on individual tasks. We will also be happy to advise you on the development and establishment of your own simulation processes.



Virtual functional testing
Virtual strength analysis
Fast evaluation of different variants



Early detection of vulnerabilities
Fewer and more targeted trials
Material saving




Simulation as a driver of innovation
Shorter development times
Optimized products

What makes us specialists in the field of FEM simulations?

Simulation is our craft. At the time of the founding of our engineering office back in 1971, Wölfel was one of the pioneers in Germany in simulations with the finite element method. Due to the variety of customers and industries for which we have carried out simulation projects since then, we have a quick grasp of all tasks which we may be confronted with. Particularly complex simulations are our specialty, and our focus is on these highly demanding tasks. Whether virtual crash tests, contact problems or NVH analyses, with our experience of almost 50 years and more than 800 projects annually, we help you to drastically shorten product development times, almost completely save costs for prototypes and identify new potentials. 

We exclusively use highly professional software such as SIMULIA Abaqus, ANSYS or Femap/Nastran as well as a powerful IT structure. This enables us to guarantee accurate and reliable results in a short period of time. Thanks to the versatility of our company, we can also carry out measurements to validate the virtual results in addition to the simulations.



I am happy to support you with numerical simulations and advise you on the development, optimization and automation of your simulation processes.
