The Digital Twin

Flow simulation around a turbine engine

Digital Prototyping

Physical prototypes are complex, time consuming and expensive ways to evaluate the performance of a design. When a prototype does not perform as expected, the process of re-design, revision and production must repeat, leading to costly delays in the engineering development cycle.

Our Simulation team can accelerate you past this painful early stage of prototyping by developing and running simulations of the proposed designs. Making use of advanced simulation and modelling packages, we are able to predict, visualize, and evaluate the performance of proposed designs materials and components before building prototypes or test models. These tools allow us to see the future performance of design options under their operating conditions, allowing us to iterate and refine these designs quickly and easily.

Working with our simulation department can substantially reduce the cost and risk associated with research and development, helping you stay on budget and meet deadlines while providing confidence in design decisions before committing to building your first prototype.
