Structural Analysis

Optimized without compromise.

Structural Analysis

Structural analysis applied from concept through production design.

For conventional and composite materials, our methods include linear and non-linear analysis of:

  • Material stress/strain behaviour
  • Large displacements and rotations
  • Contact interaction
  • Temperature changes

For composite structures, our unique analysis capabilities include:


Extensive database of reinforced plastics, adhesives and core materials


Validated modelling approaches for laminates, sandwich panels and bonding


Tools to define and transition laminate definitions between finite element solvers


Direct interface and feedback from manufacturing teams

Optimization techniques, including Design of Experiments (DOE) studies, deliver:

  • Improved products at minimal mass by optimizing material distribution within available volumes
  • Early concept direction for product and system topology
  • Improved stamping structural behaviours
