Numerical modelling

Solving engineering problems sometimes requires the use of computer predictions.  Our engineers are trained and experienced in the following modelling techniques:

  • Finite element analysis (FE)
  • Boundary element analysis (BE)
  • Statistical energy analysis (SEA)
  • Analytical models
  • Empirical predictions
  • Ray-tracing
  • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

Using these techniques requires access to specialist software; our engineers regularly use the following packages:

  • COMSOL Multiphysics
  • HyperMesh
  • CadnaA

As some of our calculation routines require significant computing power, we use the Iridis supercomputer at the University of Southampton, or an Amazon cloud-based server solution for some tasks.
