Analysis and Test

AEON offer comprehensive analysis and testing.

 

 

We typically use Siemens Advanced FEM Software (NX and MSC NASTRAN) to perform static and dynamic mechanical and thermal analyses, however we are also fully skilled in the use of:

  • ANSYS
  • COMSOL
  • MATLAB
  • ABAQUS

From the Simple to the Complex

AEON has broad experience in performing both simple component analysis and complex assemblies having multiple materials, boundary conditions and load cases. We pride ourselves on our ability to perform computational analyses in a timely and logical manner, generating a comprehensive yet understandable report for each job.

 

 

In particular, we specialise in the analysis of spacecraft and instrumentation, and have performed analysis pertaining to transient radiative thermal loading (in conjunction with self-generated thermals), random vibration and shock loading.

 

To assure the accuracy of our analytical inputs (such as material properties), we actively maintain a materials database that is traceable to empirically derived materials characterisation testing performed in-house.
