Client Cases

Composite Aero-Surface Panels

Find out more

We were tasked by a world-renowned aero-engine manufacturer to design and develop lightweight carbon-composite sandwich panel wing pylon structures for a next-generation engine test bed. Subjected to harsh heat and vibrational loading conditions, the panels had to match flight version performance, which resulted in the need for novel Kevlar® seals to be designed to meet challenging airstream and engine mounting deflection requirements.

Composite Space Structures

Find out more

We performed launch simulation of composite structures located in a rocket head, during launch these structures are subject to extreme acoustic vibrations that can lead to fatigue. Through efficient design and analysis iterations, the aluminium honeycomb core structures were optimised to be as light as possible whilst withstanding the extreme operational loading with a high fatigue life. The successful delivery of this project resulted in the development of design methods for large satellite solar arrays, allowing the customer to meet the demands of new markets, particularly in the field of future GPS location satellites.
