Mechanical and Structural Simulation
Using simulation to predict mechanical perfomance is a great way to reduce time and costs in the product development process. We can take your ideas and simulate how they are going to perform in the real world. Applying FEA to carry out virtual testing for strength, deflection, stress concentration and fatigue we can quickly identify areas of concern. So we can explore and optimise all of your ideas whilst saving money and time. Click above for more.
Thermal Simulation
We simulate heat transfer to develop thermally optimised designs. Understand the thermal response so that you can drive the development of reliable products, quickly and for less. We can examine everything from electronics cooling to high temperature creep. Couple this with mechanical analysis to look at thermal stress or degradation. Couple it with fluids for convection. If you have got thermal needs we can help. Click above for more.
Fluid Flow CFD
Analysis of fluid flows of gas and liquids using computational fluid dynamics provides insight into how the shape of your design will influence the flow rate, velocity and turbulence produced in operation. This insight will allow design optimisation of all fluid contact areas, this can be applied to fan and pump designs, HVAC, aerodynamic, hydrodynamics, porous materials, and many more. If your innovation is experiencing turbulence we can help! Click above for more.
Materials Selection and testing
Your choice of material will greatly influence the sucess of your product. To have a full characterisation of the material will help you to decide how to use it in your design and how to take advantage of its properties. We will identify, test and source candidate materials for you to ensure you leverage your product success. Click above for more.
It has been said that progress in any field is limited by the materials applied, but we also like to make sure that our clients make the most of their current materials and can extract the full potential from any new materials they apply. We can guide you in selection and application of materials for your latest development, recommend and source materials for substitution or help you to make the most of your current application. Sound choices for materials will have the potential to lead to reduced sourcing and manufacturing costs, greater lifetime and reliability, and of course increased product performance through improved properties. We have expertise in metals, polymers, ceramics, and natural materials, including fibres, and we have a penchant for finding applications for recycled materials. Or you have an interest in materials compatibility, applications for welding, or need materials for friction and wear we are here to help. We can provide materials analysis and testing to find out exactly how a material will perform, or to carry out quality control checks. When it comes to materials selection the crucial factor is availability, we can assist with materials sourcing to ensure a good economic supply for manufacturers.
