Specialist Technical Expertise

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

CFD has a prominent role in providing bespoke engineering solutions to complex and unique problems, and generating robust and reliable data, providing assurance in the decisions being made. Fluid flow induces complexities across multiple industry sectors, which usually range from basic laminar flow in pipes to multi-phase phenomena involving chemical reactions, turbulence, rotating machinery and conjugate heat transfer, to name a few.

  • Thermal Optimisation
  • Consequence Modelling
  • Cavitation and Phase Change
  • Particle Tracking Patterns and Dispersion
  • Hydrodynamics

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

FEA offers many benefits over traditional empirical methods enhancing route to market, productivity, and innovation. Successful stress, deflection and thermal analyses are a useful asset when modelled and interpreted correctly. We have assisted many companies assess structures for integrity, life, and performance.

Our in-house expertise enables us to adopt the right analysis approach to best meet the requirements of the application. We apply individually, or a combination of, beam, shell and solid meshing, combining it with linear and non-linear contact modelling and a variety of of static and dynamic loading conditions. More often than not, the analyses have to comply with the requirements of regulatory standards and codes. As a consequence of this we have developed familiarity with the requirements of various regulatory codes and standards such as ASME, Eurocode and DIN, to name a few.

Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI)

When required, we use our fluid mechanics capability in tandem with our structural mechanics capability to perform fluid-structure analyses to assess scenarios such as wind and wave loading, tidal and gas turbines, process fluids and biomedical applications.
