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.
To understand the mechanical or structural performance of your design, before you have ever lifted a finger to make anything, is a very powerful advantage. We take your ideas and an understanding of the conditions they will be used in and create a set of virtual experiments to show how the design responds to real world situations. The information you get from our simulations will push your innovation to its full potential. We can examine deformation and stress response to loading, in single parts or in assemblies with multi part contact. Or we can look at mechanical events, motion of parts, kinematics, closures and impact. If you have non linear deformation or even super-plasticity then we can analyse it. Vibration and dynamic analysis can be carried out, and we can provide insight into fatigue life and reliability. Coupled simulation with thermal or fluid to look at thermal expansion/contraction and the associated stress field or fluid structure interaction such as aero-elasticity, wind loads, inflation pressures or pump shaft deflection, Mechanical and Structural simulations rely on accurate materials data for our materials models if this data is not available we can test your candidate materials and provide selection/sourcing advice. We have list of case studies above so check back regularly they are always changing !
