Identifying critical areas, pushing the limits of use, better targeting physical tests, substituting materials, redesigning, limiting post-realization modifications: the solution will be based on iterations that our teams will accelerate by numerically reproducing the mechanical behavior of the product.

Simulation, design, conception, optimization :

Based on the simulations performed, our engineers then work with project managers and product owners to define new designs, specify a new system, and adapt tooling to offer you optimal solutions for improving design and performance while saving costs and reducing development time.

Our specialized engineers provide you with their expertise and sectorial knowledge:

  • From linear static analysis in small deformations to non-linear dynamic analysis in large deformations
  • Numerical representation of experimental mechanical tests (bending, compression, traction, Brazilian test, Wedge splitting test, etc.) to evaluate the behavior of your products and optimize their performance by substituting materials, adding coatings and improving the geometry.
  • Control of mechanical behavior laws: elastic, viscoelastic, viscoplastic, damage …
  • Multiphysics analysis (coupling with CFD …)
  • Fracture mechanics, fatigue and durability studies …
  • Solid knowledge of homogeneous and heterogeneous materials, anisotropic behaviors: metallic materials, ceramics, metals, glasses, polymers and composites …
  • Identification of material properties and parameters of behavior laws from experimental tests.
