Thermal Mechanical Analysis
"Gabe has done an excellent job of providing FEA analysis for several new products we are developing.
He has been very resourceful in researching material properties and has provided extremely useful data enabling Semicoa to make critical
decisions on new packages. His responses have always been very timely and he has been accomodating to the schedules we have set.
His reports have been of a very high quality, so much that we have included them in a published paper and in press releases for new products.
I highly recommend FEA SERVICES and Gabe and will continue to utilize his services in the future."

Non-Linear FEA and Damage Tolerance
"Mr. Dambaugh supported the Damage Tolerance Team work efforts for NASA’s Constellation Program Upper Stage design and development efforts.
He provided leadership in developing and executing assessment plans for various design issues. His development plans were thorough yet concise,
without requiring an excessive set of analytic evaluations. His ability to formulate these plans quickly while coordinating customer needs was exemplary."
"The entire process from the initial model submission to the analysis of the results went very smoothly. Breaking the project down into two phases
allowed us to understand the overall performance of our frames as well as focus on specific high-load areas in greater detail.
The formatting of the results presentation saved me hours of prep time as I was able to use the actual file without editing for my discussions with upper management."

Fatigue Durability and Forensics
"Mr. Dambaugh (of FEA SERVICES) was a pleasure to work with, and he got the job done within budget and ahead of time. He was diligent, insightful, professional, timely, polite, and a good teacher. Ours was an unintuitive, complex problem, but he handled it with ease. The revised component survived the abuse, and helped our engine become the first and only heavy fuel solution in its class ever to pass the US Army's endurance qualification test for unmanned airplanes."

FEA System Development
"I was very impressed with the FE analysis methodology development FEA SERVICES provided our company. Technically they presented a unique proposal to a challenging problem. I found FEA SERVICES project management to be exceptional. Whereas I typically end up managing my outside FE analysis, FEA SERVICES provided a detailed time line and delivered all tasks on schedule at budget."
Adams Thermal Systems
"Gabe Dambaugh of FEA SERVICES was a pleasure to work with. He has an excellent grasp of engineering on a conceptual level that allowed a fast and effective approach to the problem. The time spent in developing models was directed by data
created during the model process and Gabe was flexible and helpful in advising the best approaches to take. He even offered advice for experimental methods during the problem solving process. The end result was a model showing exactly what we experienced as failure location and mode. The model pointed us down a solution path not previously seen until the model and associated testing pointed in the right direction. We saved weeks of hypothetical-question based testing."
FEA with Material Testing
"Your material analysis through FEA has proven very beneficial to a project of mine where we incorporated a common polymeric material into a new application using a non-standard forming process. The analysis results served well to reassure customers of the product robustness and safety. Sales of this product have contributed significantly to record company sales throughout last year. The investment in your services has paid for itself many times over."
"The people at Callies
Performance Products would like to thank all those at
FEA SERVICES who were involved with the evaluation and
development of our recently implemented crankshaft modifications. Your
company's support has greatly helped us in eliminating a long standing product
weakness. Recommended changes in both material and design appear to have
solved the problem. We appreciate the quick response and your attention
to the details of our project."
