Design & Feasibility Studies

AES are able to provide support with all aspects of structural design on or off-site to assist clients and their design engineering teams.  The industries in which we work include: construction, marine, renewable energy and aviation, helping customers achieve many key aspects such as; increased reliability, less downtime, improved maintenance schedules, and de-risking design.  We use various techniques to achieve these results, such as Failure Mode Effect Analyses.

Structural Steelwork

First principles design and verification of test fixtures, fittings and light industrial structures. These meet customer or certification requirements with the necessary reporting to detail exactly the processes/methods required for manufacture, and to aid & support the customer with understanding their product, its design, and furthering their product knowledge.

Structural Evaluation & Reporting

Structural Evaluation & Reporting (Analysis and Verification)

AES often check the performance of a component against the intent of the designed part, and are able to provide proof of concept via FE, for various high cost & high value components.  These parts are passed as fit-for-purpose, and often have secondary optimisations performed for various parameters, once the initial FE studies have been reported.  These studies often help clients with: minimising weight, reducing manufacturing time, and assist with production method selection.

optimisation studies

Optimisation Studies

Using the latest tools and software AES are able to apply techniques and routines to optimise designs or structures for specific desirable behaviours and responses.  Single or multi variable analyses are used to assist clients with maximising value, increasing reliability and minimising risks associated with particular designs or products.

Uses:  Structural efficiency and design optimisation, certification reporting


Statistical Analysis

AES have performed numerous statistical analyses to further knowledge with products and materials for use in design or analysis.  These analyses range from generation of material design allowables for major Wind Energy OEMs, to material selection from interpreting test data.
