New materials, full utilisation of both materials and structures and more complex load conditions call for advanced structural engineering and analysis.

These analyses provide an opportunity to evaluate and verify the behaviour of a structure prior to production or change of conditions.

Areas of expertise:

  • Computational Fluid Dynamics
  • Advanced Structural Analysis
  • Collision simulations of vehicle restrain systems
  • Hazard Engineering

Computational fluid dynamics - CFD

We offer computational fluid dynamic (CFD) analysis within various areas, performed in full-scale dimensions and flow conditions. CFD makes it possible to simulate and describe flows that are complicated, expensive or even impossible to create using experimental methods. CFD can thereby ensure that the amount of experiments are reduced, thereby minimising cost.

  • Slamming (wave in deck, wave forces, non-linear wave forces),
  • Sloshing (tank sloshing, slosh dynamics)
  • Green water on deck
  • Under-deck impact
  • Wave run-up

Advanced structural analysis - finite element

We offer linear and non-linear analysis of global and local structure, refined and detail finite element analysis as well as FEM/FEA and non-linear plastic analysis of structures. Advanced structural analysis makes it possible to optimise the structure and save both weight and unnecessary cost.

Collision simulations of vehicle restrain systems

In order to improve and maintain highway safety, the design of roads requires the installation of devices to restrain vehicles and pedestrians from entering dangerous zones and areas. The system safely redirects errant vehicles according to specified standards. With our collision simulation technology, you achieve a new vehicle restraint system in a time and cost effective manner, validated with full-scale experiments.

  • Vehicle accident reconstruction
  • Crash simulations

Hazard Engineering

We offer assessment of loads and response due to: gas explosion, fire actions, boat impact, falling objects, etc.. In combination with advanced structural analysis, the potential to optimise the structure and save both weight and unnecessary cost is high.

  • Impact force
  • Collision
  • Accidental loads
