Engineering analysis and design services are
structured to augment your existing capabilities, on
an as-needed basis.


DESCRIPTION OF SERVICES
Available services include a full range of
capabilities like specialized ply by ply laminate
analysis, finite element analysis, solid modeling,
part design, and simulation.

Application areas include transportation, building,
infrastructure, marine, and energy.


Location
Located here since 2000, the San
Francisco Bay area is home to many world
class engineering and manufacturing
organizations, universities, and research
institutions.


CAPABILITIES
Structural Analysis & Engineering

Structural analysis helps match material type and component geometry to the operating
environment. The goal is to minimize the use of expensive materials and simplify the
fabrication process. Structural analysis ensures that parts perform to the client
specifications and exhibit desirable qualities, such as low weight, high corrosion
resistance, and high stiffness/strength.

Design Engineering

Product and system engineering services are also available to review designs and
perform engineering calculations to meet the requirementss of codes or standards, like
ASCE, ABS, or CFR.

Non-composite connection and mounting parts can be engineered for building or
transportation applications to assess part performance or increase accuracy.

Finite element Analysis (FEA)

FEA predicts part performance based on detailed dimensions, laminate geometry,
material properties, and loading data. FEA images highlight high stress areas that might
require buildup or reniforcement. FEA can show large deformation effects through
non-linear analysis, as well as vibration reponse through modal analysis. Modal analysis is
especially improtant for transportation or marine components to help minimmze twist and
mechanical vibration.

Analysis results are used during desgn to arrive at the most cost effective, high
performance part.

Parameters incorporated into the FEA process are laminate stack design, material
thickness, material type, geometry, and weight. Ply by ply results are available as an
output, as well as the incorporation of common failure criteria, like Tsai-Wu, Max Layer
Stress/strain, Hashin, etc.
