CAE simulation tools can be of great help in optimising the cost and duration of evaluation of a package-s behaviour throughout its life cycle, including transport, without having to perform physical verifications on prototypes.
Understanding the reasons for the success of spider webs would allow us to apply that knowledge to the design of light structures or the development of biomaterials with higher strengths than are currently available.
It will not be easy to mimic biological structures with a view to improving hull coatings and reducing drag, but the tools of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) may be very useful.
On September the 11th, 2015, a crane collapsed through the roof of the Grand Mosque in Mecca. The investigation of the event required enlisting the help of computational mechanics in order to provide an explanation of the crane failure to the Saudi Binladin Group.
The search for nature-inspired, innovative solutions known as biomimetics allows us to solve not just run-of-the-mill problems, but also some major structural challenges.
Consultancy is always a fascinating activity. Each project brings new challenges, often unexpected, which we face armed with our know-how, tools and experience. Our only goal is to give full satisfaction to the client who trusts our capabilities.
The latest advances in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) have shown the value in using methods based on solving Boltzmann’s equation.
With additive manufacturing on their side, companies are realizing that they can effectively and efficiently make products with each customer in mind, going back to how things should be produced—for a market of one.
The engineers of the Ocean Cleanup project made use of SIMULIA’s XFlow fluid dynamics program. As a result, they improved the design of the retention barrier,ensuring that it remained operational even in extreme conditions, while minimising the expense of the tests performed.
