Through our company training and online training programmes, we help you improve your engineering knowledge and foresight while helping individuals build in-demand skills that propel their careers.
The first project we did with Enterfea was a silos design in 2015. Their non-linear FEA analyzes allowed to significantly reduce the costs of that project. Recently with the enormous support and commitment of Enterfea, we did a pressure vessel with imperfections design. Non-linear FEA analyzes allowed to save a project that seemed to be hopeless. The level of complexity and detail of analyzes provided by Enterfea always exceeds my expectations. Łukasz with his knowledge and commitment is a top-class expert in the field of FEA. Having 15 years of experience in the design industry, I can say that at the current level, Enterfea is no longer competing with the competition, they set new standards in the design projects and can only compete with themselves.
For many years, Enterfea has been performing for us the static calculations of complex acid-resistant steel tanks for the pharmaceutical, food and chemical industries, meeting the requirements of international standards (EN 13445, ASME Sec. VIII div.2, AD-2000 Merkblatt and others). Most often, static calculations are made taking into account earthquakes for tanks that are installed in all parts of the world. Łukasz and his team have vast experience and practical knowledge in the field of performing these calculations, they are always willing to help and never leave us with problems. Thanks to this, they solve the most difficult technical problems for us related to projects and customer requirements.
We have used Enterfea for a number of large steel tank designs. With the cost of raw materials increasing rapidly, it is vital for our customers that our designs are efficient whilst still being safe and code compliant. This is why Enterfera is so important. The level of detail involved in their complex non-linear analyses provide unrivaled value for money and the service is exceptional – Lukasz goes above and beyond to ensure any queries are answered even after a contract has been completed. His extensive knowledge of FEA gives us peace of mind that value is maximized and risk is mitigated as much as possible in our designs.
Enterfea proved a high-quality approach with the NL analysis of the post-deformed storage tank they did for us. Thorough diagnosis of the issue has resulted in complex output, a detailed report has explained the phenomenon step by step, allowing even non-technical users to follow it up. Łukasz has soft skills allowing him to rebuild one's confidence and engineering knowledge in the so-called “complex-stress-state” with a single phone call. He has never refused to answer any questions and was always calm and patient, while straightforward when talking about his results. If a truly fiendish engineering case exists, Łukasz definitely has the power to deal with it!
We have been working successfully with Enterfea for many years. Enterfea is always a reliable partner for the static design of our conveyor technology. In our current project, we are jointly developing a completely new, statically optimized conveyor system for integration into our standard.
Enterfea is performing all of the designs of silos for us with nonlinear FEA for over 5 years now, and we are very satisfied with the cooperation. Especially since our Customers appreciate the quality of the designs, which leads to more sales for us and no issues with verification of designs by the authorities.
The training in advanced analysis of engineering structures using the FEA method conducted by Łukasz Skotny was carried out to the highest standard. In addition to the theoretical part, practical workshops were organized, where everyone could check the application of theoretical knowledge in practice. The whole training was a complete and coherent message and it can be directly implemented in everyday work, giving real benefits in the optimization of design solutions.
I took part in training taught by Łukasz. His knowledge and passion with which he shared his experience in structural design are impressive. Łukasz possesses excellent skill in many software packages for structural design (like RFEM and Robot) regarding their strengths, weaknesses, and best practices. The training itself was very professional with difficulty level adjusted to attendees.
On behalf of the entire Stress & Civil department SHI FW team, we thank you for a very substantive and understandable training. Łukasz is a very good trainer with high technical culture and very transparent knowledge transfer. He has a wide range of knowledge from thin-walled shell and plates analysis, which allows him to professionally prepare engineers for performing difficult GMNiA analyzes.
Finally!!... straight-forward, practical explanations of FEA concepts that ACTUALLY MAKE SENSE! I wish I had taken this course years ago. It would have saved me tremendous amounts of time! As a bonus, the course is also entertaining and fun. Highly recommended!
This course replaced Netflix for many evenings and was probably more entertaining! Its easy-going atmosphere was much needed and a refreshing change in the world of structural engineering. Needless to say it didn't take any of the educational value away! I would add that I am a civil structural engineer and I am already using a lot of what I learned in my practice. I definitely encourage taking this course if you are in any way involved in FEA. Thank you for a great experience, l am looking forward to more!
Throughout this course, you'll learn everything you need to know about nonlinear analysis in FEA, which is not taught in any textbook. Starting with the most basic concepts, neat explanations, examples, and amazing challenges you will have all the tools to spread your wings in FEA and boost your career.
I definitely recommend Łukasz's course. It has a lot of easy-reading content and practical examples that explain major concepts of nonlinear analysis. This kind of plain and understandable explanation you won't find in any scientific book. I can honestly say it helped me to develop my structural engineer career.
Łukasz's approach to sharing knowledge about difficult matters proves his deep understanding of the subject. This makes it easy to approach a non-linear course without worrying about overwhelming formulas and "smart" words. Informal language and good explanations help you digest each lesson given in small portions. There are many very well-presented examples that you can follow to better understand each block of the course "by doing". The modules end with tricky tests, during which you can verify your own progress. Thank you for your effort Łukasz.
The definitive training course for non-linear FEA. This course comprehensively covers how to approach non-linear static analysis in an easy to understand and fun manner. The lessons are well written and engaging and are complemented by a large number of practical example problems. Highly recommended!
A beautifully crafted experience for structural engineers who really want to understand the nonlinear effects and their interactions If you want to be an expert in FEA Design and engineering in general, there is just no way around this course and Łukasz's work in general. The methods of teaching the concepts are revolutionary and deliver the knowledge in a way, that it's just fun to learn and it really sticks.
Highly recommend the Breakthrough FEA Course and Nonlinear FEA Masterclass, especially to structural or mechanical engineers interested in the design of bins, silos & hoppers. Both are extensive courses containing videos and text explanations for each of the key sections involved in FEA design with examples. I began the breakthrough course 2 years post-graduate with minimal experience in FEA design. Following completion of the non-linear course, I felt confident enough to correctly model, interpret and validate results.
This class offers clear guidelines that have made me more confident in the choices I make when using non linear stress analysis. The combination of clear explanations and worked examples makes this course extremely valuable for practicing engineers.
If you want to play a role in structural engineering you need FEA, there is no choice. Breakthrough FEA Course is the right place to start the adventure, getting the basic concepts and the fundamentals. Nonlinear FEA Masterclass is the next level of the adventure. This is an advanced course that gives you theoretical and practical knowledge to solve real complex engineering problems using numerical simulation. The secret ingredient of the course is Łukasz, he has an amazing teaching style, he is an FEA Master, and he really makes the difference. There's no better way to learn FEA.
Łukasz is one of the most passionate FEA analysts and a humble person I have ever seen. Anyone can tell his passion for nonlinear FEA through his online courses and blogs, and most importantly he is always there to clear my doubts.
Applying knowledge from the course I already found errors in my modeling and the results of the calculation. I was always relying upon the result of the solver and trusting it so much... But double-check in manual simple calculation can save you also from trouble. Thank you so much for sharing your experience and knowledge in FEA. 10 thumbs up.
Great course! Real examples allow you to understand how everything works in the real world without complicated math. After a brief reading of articles from Lukasz, I immediately made a decision to get the Breakthrough FEA course to dive into the exciting world of finite element analysis. I have already applied received knowledge in my daily work with great success. I am very much looking forward to getting new courses from Lukasz!
I thought I had a solid knowledge of designing steel structures using FEA because I believed it was just comparing the stresses found in the FEA analysis with the yield strength of the steel. In 2019 I came across the Enterfea blog. From that day on, I started following all the posts and decided to enroll in the Breakthrough FEA course. I can say that the course has been a watershed in my career. Now I can say that I have developed solid knowledge in FEA analysis. The course is remarkable and has taken me to another level.
Your course is amazing and this is exactly what I was looking for. It is conceptual, practical, and application based. It's not mathematical and theoretical. Honestly, you have a very good, cheerful personality and that's why sessions are very interactive :)
Thank you for creating this FEA course. I found it very helpful and pretty much exactly what I was looking for. I am a design engineer manager and though I do not do FEA personally, I am often the point of contact for contracting out these services and wanted to have a better understanding of the process so that I could interact more effectively with my consultants and ensure that we were getting back the results we needed.
Łukasz explains the practical aspects of FEA in a very structured and easy to understand way. It helps the reader to understand the practical FEA in a very simple manner. I highly recommend his FEA course to anyone who is looking to enter into the field of FEA simulations and modeling.
