Leading edge engineering analysis accurately visualises and quantifies problems leading to the development of optimised solutions.

The ability to simulate real life engineering problems enables us to complete rigorous testing, optimisation and verification of designs in a virtual environment.

The Benefits of an Integrated Approach

Avesta Consulting offers a uniquely integrated approach to engineering design. We apply advanced analysis and simulation throughout the engineering design process from start to finish, rather than as an add on at the end. Simulation techniques are applied in the development of new designs, during testing, and for verification compliance of existing designs.

The ability to apply advanced analysis through the design process delivers multiple benefits to your project, such as:

  • Reducing project timelines by eliminating the need for post-design analysis.
  • Reducing project costs by ensuring final designs don’t need to be ‘de-featured’ for analysis.
  • Providing full optimisation of all aspects of the design whilst meeting design criteria.
  • Optimising and verifying the designs during the concept development phase rather than during detailed engineering.
  • Speeding up final delivery of the project by reducing real-life prototyping requirements through rigorous testing.

Leading Edge Solutions

Using simulation at the concept development stage reduces overall project timeline and operating costs. By rigorously testing, optimising and verifying designs in a virtual environment during concept development, we can reduce real-life prototyping requirements and accelerate project delivery, saving you time and money.

Advanced Analysis Capabilities

We specialise in the provision of the following simulation techniques:

  • Finite element analysis (FEA).
  • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
  • Pipe network stress and fluid flow analysis, process modelling and specialised engineering simulation and calculation software tools.

Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

FEA is applicable to a wide range of mechanical, civil and structural applications. Our capabilities include:

  • Linear and nonlinear analysis including deflection, material and contact.
  • Static and dynamic structural analysis including natural frequency, harmonic (vibration), spectral response (seismic) and transient (shock, impact and blast).
  • Steady state and transient heat transfer analysis.
  • Fatigue life assessment (stress and strain life).
  • Time dependent high temperature creep failure assessment.
  • Staged construction sequencing.

Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

CFD analysis is applicable to the most complex industrial flow problems. Our capabilities include:

  • Laminar and turbulent steady state and transient flow.
  • Incompressible and compressible flow.
  • Heat transfer analysis including solid conjugate heat transfer (CHT).
  • Stationary and rotating domains (fluid, solid and porous representations).
  • Multi-component and multi-phase fluid flow modelling.
  • Chemical reactions and discrete particle models (DPM).
