Advanced analysis of composite structures and expertise in composite manufacturing methods.
cDynamics has a strong history of design and analysis of isotropic materials (steel, aluminium, titanium) and orthotropic (composite) materials. Our principal focus in this area is in CFRP and GRP. We can cover the entire engineering timeline from initial concept studies through detail design, installation and analysis of any problems encountered during the lifetime of the product.
We are experienced designers of composite structures with detailed knowledge of materials (sandwich cores, fibre types, adhesives, etc) and production methods (vacuum infusion, hand lay-up, filament winding etc) and frequently consult with leading companies in the industry seeking to use composite materials in novel applications. Our long experience with FEA packages including MSC Nastran/Marc and Abaqus allows us to model composite structures to a high degree of accuracy.
