Our aerospace engineering experience incorporates a wide variety of components and structures, including complex aircraft engine design, CFD analysis, optimization and validation.
Turbo Machinery CFD Assessments:
Determination of unsteady pressure fields to evaluate surface pressures in a turbo machine stage or helicopter rotor blades
Axial & Radial Flow Compressor Performance:
Predict the transient internal flow (e.g. stall and choke) and heat transfer for a thermo mechanical analysis
Turbine Blade & Disks Optimization:
Blade profile or root thermo mechanical optimization incorporating mapped CFD pressures and centrifugal loads. Disks mistuning minimization by optimal placement of manufacturing characteristics.
TurboManager: Bespoke Tool:
Analytical estimation of hysteresis, macro-slip (Coulomb) and micro-slip (Fretting), peak stress and equivalent viscous damping determination, lifting
Fracture Mechanics & Lifing Assessments:
Crack initiation, propagation, stress & strain-based lifting and cumulative damage
Industry leaders, with over a decade of expertise in applying structural optimization to minimize weight and maximize structural (e.g. blade root profile) or flow performance (i.e. internal flow paths)
Dreamliner Delamination: Aircraft Designers Turn to Simulation to Avert Issues
I recently provided insights on Boeing’s delamination issue to EETimes.com’s Military & Aerospace DesignLine, discussing the challenges experienced when moving to different manufacturing methods and new materials. Learn more >>
