What can composite analysis services do for you?
Advanced composite materials can push your design to the cutting edge of performance. In many cases however, the lack of time, resources or analysis tools may limit optimization. Leading-edge analysis and simulation tools, in the hands of highly skilled staff, will lead to truly innovative design.
Common Problems in Composite Design
- Analysis Limitations – Results from conventional analysis methods are inaccurate or unachievable. This may force excessive conservatism or eliminate composites as a viable option.
- Costly Test and Validation Phases - Analysis & simulation limitations force expensive & lengthy qualification tests. Testing usually makes optimization too expensive.
- Expertise Limitations - Project teams may lack the composites-specific expertise required to tackle the technical challenges of employing advanced composite materials.
