Client Case

Wind Turbine Concept

Find out more

We performed structural analysis of a novel, small scale wind turbine concept to be utilised for powering remote agricultural farms. Analysis of the complex aero loading imparted on the composite ducting required intricate load mapping within our finite element model to ensure accuracy. As a direct consequence of this project, our client was able to identify a manufacturing technique with 40% cost savings.

Filament Wound Pressure Vessel

Our team used combined composite design and analysis capabilities to optimise a high-pressure carbon-wrapped hydrogen fuel tank, to be used in a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. Initially we used synthesised layup models for fast design iteration and optimisation, followed by full 3D composite wound mesh models for final structural assurance. To create these 3D models we have developed unique in-house software tools which allow us to translate between CAD/CAM robotic filament winding software, and our own structural analysis software. This capability allows us to assess different filament-wound designs swiftly and accurately.
