Aerostructure design analysis

Our engineers are experienced in design and analysis of civil and military fixed or rotary wing vehicles with metallic and composite structures covering the following topics:

    • Optimisation of Aerostructures
    • Concept and configuration analysis
    • Static & fatigue analysis and certification documentation
      • stiffened panel structures
      • honeycomb/foam sandwich panel structures
    • Fatigue and damage tolerance
    • Bolted and bonded joints analysis
    • Thermal analysis
    • Buckling analysis
    • Vibration and modal analysis
    • Non-linear analysis

We use the following design analysis tools:

FEM: MSC Nastran/Patran for static and linear problems, Abaqus for non-linear problems such as material studies, large deformation analysis, contact and impact simulations.

Optimisation: Aero Optimal Optimisation Tool.

Classical analytical calculations remain an essential part of our analysis services.
