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.

Welcome to the world of Virtual Prototyping. Here we can test your innovations, before you make parts or prototypes, with digital design simulation of your ideas to answer questions such as can we optimise strength to weight? What temperature will it fail at? What will the flow rate be like? Can we reduce drag? To find the answers we use FEA , this simulation method is applied to mechanical, thermal and fluid response of parts and assemblies. You can digitally explore designs to optimise, improve and validate from concept through to manufacturing, and reduce the time and money invested in development. Our methods are bridging the gaps between concept, engineering and manufacturing in a limitless variety of industries: marine, aerospace, automotive, structural, medical and many more. We also use simulation to examine failures or improve existing & old designs. Our failure analysis will help you identify the reasons why things went wrong, and guide you to avoid further failures. Of course all successful products rely on the right materials, we provide materials selection, testing and sourcing to ensure you have the right stuff.
