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 recognized analysis capabilities include:

1

Extensive database of reinforced plastics, adhesives and core materials

2

Validated modelling approaches for laminates, sandwich panels and bonding

3

Tools to define and transition laminate definitions between finite element solvers

4

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
