Simulation

Not Your Normal Engineering Design Firm

Simulation
We have the following advanced simulation capabilities along with our engineering and design services. We utilize High Performance Computing (HPC) or Cluster Computing to quickly analyze complex systems with high accuracy in the following areas:

  • Finite Element Analysis [FEA]
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics [CFD]
  • Fluid Structure Interaction [FSI]
Whether it be problems in the design of structures, fluid flow or a combination of the two we solve complex real world problems utilizing state of the art software, hardware and a one of a kind thought process. We do not restrict our selves to solving problems the way everyone else does. But rather we look at new ways of solving problems pulling experience from other industries. We are always willing to take on a problem we have not seen before and work with you to come up with a solution that meets your needs.
FEA

With FEA, we are able to solve almost all mechanical, fluid, kinematic, thermal or coupled problems that you can bring forward.

  • Structural and thermal analyses
  • Modal and harmonic analyses
  • Transient and steady state analyses
  • Linear and non-linear buckling analyses
  • Large deflections
  • Frictional and non-linear contacts
  • Linear and non-linear material models
  • 2D and 3D simulations
CFD

We are able to provide the following services:

  • Compressible and incompressible flow
  • Transient and steady state flow
  • Laminar and turbulent flow
  • Multicomponent and multiphase flow
  • Conjugate heat transfer models
  • Rotating and moving domains
  • Bouyant and free surface flows
  • Porous media flows
FSI

We are able to provide the following services:

  • Structural, thermal and fluid 1 way and 2 way analyses
  • Transient and steady state analyses
  • Full 3D fluid analysis or simplified 1D fluid analysis coupled to structural domains
HPC

Area 51 has constructed a high performance computer (HPC) for large simulation analysis. This allows us to complete complex and large assemblies in a reasonable amount of time. The specifications of the cluster are:

  • Dell blade chassis
  • 132 cores
  • 528 Gb of RAM
  • Infiniband Interconnects
  • 16 Tb NAS
