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 stay competitive in a fast paced global economy the marketplace demands products with greater performance, more features, less weight, in a more compact package. This trend towards smaller products with more power is driving innovation in thermal management. To contribute to this goal we can work closely with your team to simulate thermal response and performance to user and environmental conditions. If its electronic devices, server cooling, automotive, low temperature applications, heat exchangers or even catering equipment our ability to accurately simulate the thermodynamics of your application will guide your design choices. Typically your product development process will lead to rapid configuration changes and application of the latest materials. We can examine thermal processing, annealing, thermoforming, mold design, welding, heat leaks, thermal losses, phase change, enthalpy, conduction, convection and radiation Coupled with fluid flow we can examine forced convection, natural or mixed modes to see the effects of channels. Or coupled with mechanical we can examine thermal expansion and contraction effects such residual stresses, shrink fitting, or thermally induced creep
