At Gill R&D, we offer finite element expertise in a number of areas, including ultrasonics, fluid dynamics, thermal, vibration and stress analysis.
Finite element simulation offers the ability to optimise a product computationally, prior to the prototyping stage. This offers reduced time and cost compared to physical prototyping alone, allowing exploration of wider design spaces or simply reducing the time, expenditure and risk required to produce a ready-to-market product.
Our full modelling and simulation services provide valuable analysis to ensure we develop rugged and reliable solutions to the quality expected.
Ultrasonic transducer design and wave propagation, using the industry leading ultrasonic and piezoelectric simulation tool PZFlex
Computational fluid dynamics simulations for subsonic aerodynamics and internal flow of both liquids and gases
Optical wave propagation and interaction with structures.
Temperature and situation analysis. Heat transfer, thermal expansion, static and vibrational load stress analysis in solids
Comprehensive reporting. Full simulation result reports and presentation of data to customer’s specifications
In-depth analysis and advice. Analysis of data and recommendations for development based upon simulation results
Requirement capture: Discussions with the customer to understand the type of simulation required, and what the customer wants from the simulation
Initial model setup: Geometry de-featuring, mesh convergence study, material properties setup. Validation with any experimental results the customer may have for existing or similar systems
Model development: Using the model parameters from the initial phase, the main modelling phase studies the effect of the customer specified parameters on the product performance
Analysis: Generation of the results and analysis, together with any recommendations
Reporting: Discussion of the report with the customer and, if applicable, any further work
