Advanced Simulation technologies, the ability to understand how a product or process will behave has significantly improved. With computer-generated design and development methods, digital transformation has optimised the design process by eliminating the need to build physical prototypes.
Advanced Simulation (AS)
Creating optimised designs faster with advance simulation
CFMS uses AS to pioneer new capabilities for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Finite Element Analysis (FEA), and thermal and electromagnetic analysis. Combining these capabilities with other digital engineering services, we offer a robust test bed that provides digital expertise, and innovation support across advanced applications.
Some of our previous AS projects resulted in more efficient aircraft, faster Formula 1 racing cars, better flood prevention, lower cost manufacturing, and we recently designed the world’s first 3D-printed snowboard bindings. The bindings were tested virtually are being used by Darren Swift at 2022 Winter Paralympic Games in China.
And we haven’t stopped there. Our simulation team is pioneering more complex digital engineering capabilities, combining AS techniques that focus on the Design of Advanced Wing Structures (DAWS). This new project will generate intelligent designs, optimised for performance, material cost, manufacturing methods, and other critical industrial and commercial issues.
Here at CFMS, our technical skills and capabilities in AS include:
Computational Fluid Dynamics
Understanding how a body moves through a fluid is a core skill that CFMS uses to virtually model the aerodynamic performance and acoustic impact of future products.
We tailor the creation of meshes to computationally represent physical products and their environments in order to improve the performance of engineering analysis.
CFMS takes a multidisciplinary approach to engineering design, to ensure understanding of how one phenomenon may collectively affect a product.
Finite Element Analysis
Our consultancy teams utilise finite element methods to solve engineering problems for a range of complex products that span many industrial sectors.
Understanding how a product will perform in environments of extreme temperature is a critical skill used by CFMS to improve engineering design.
To ensure product safety, engineering structures must be accurately analysed under a range of loading conditions, a core competence of CFMS.
Industrial Process Simulation
Our capabilities in the modelling and visualisation of industrial processes helps to build digital twins of modern manufacturing facilities.
CFMS creates computational models to simulate the actions and interactions of entities within systems to better understand how they will work in practice.
Discrete Event Simulation
Our modelling capability enables customers to understand how systems or processes will evolve and perform over a series of time based events.
CFMS uses immersive technology to aid visualisation of concepts and aid collaborative design activities for its customers and partners.
