Aerospace Design & Analysis

Frewer Engineering provides a creative and advanced design and structural analysis service to the aerospace industry, specialising in lightweight structures and assemblies. Our engineers have considerable experience in the supply of aerospace engineering consultancy across a wide range of requirements from critical class A components to supporting research & development equipment.

 

Aeroplane client case

Designed a fan blade-off rig in its entirety for an aero engine development, with stretched technology limits due to engine size. End customer required airworthiness approval within 12 months, representing a business critical programme for completion with contractual commitments. Project involved carrying extremely high loads within a lightweight structure, demanding advanced non-linear analysis using our leading finite element software. Delivered on time, on budget.

Our capabilities in general Aerospace Design include:

  • 3D CAD design of metallic structures
  • 3D CAD design of carbon composite structures
  • 3D CAD design of aerospace development test equipment
  • Complex surface design with 3D CAD
  • Complex assembly design with 3D CAD

Satellite client case

Launch simulation of carbon structures located in a rocket head to ensure critical operation in space, working in severe acoustic vibration environment with serious fatigue threats. This analysis benefited from our knowledge of composite materials and manufacturing techniques involved, designing the material from scratch. This work allowed the end customer to develop design methods for very large satellite solar arrays to meet the demand of new markets e.g. the latest GPS network satellites.

Our capabilities within the satellite industry include:

  • Lightweight structures engineering consultancy
    • NASTRAN Finite Element Analysis of structures
    • Composite materials design & structural analysis
  • Antenna Structures
    • Carbon fiber composite structural analysis
    • Advanced Vibration analysis (Random Vibration, shock, acoustic etc.)
    • Honeycomb fatigue analysis
  • Mechanical equipment
    • Lightweight mechanical assembly design
    • Thermal analysis
  • Integration equipment
    • Design of satellite build stations
    • Design of satellite handling equipment
    • Bespoke satellite test structures
