Not Your Normal Engineering Design Firm

Simulation
We have the following advanced simulation capabilities to complement our engineering and design services.

• Finite Element Analysis [FEA]
• Computational Fluid Dynamics [CFD]
• Fluid Structure Interaction [FSI]

Whether clients are experiencing problems with the design of structures, fluid flow, or a combination of the two, we have the expertise to solve complex, real world problems utilizing state of the art software, hardware and one of a kind thought processes. We do not restrict ourselves to addressing issues using pre-existing methods. Rather, we utilize innovative approaches to discover new ways of solving problems by drawing on our own experience and that of other industries. We are always keen to take on unique challenges and work with our clients to provide solutions that meet their specific requirements.
FEA

With FEA, we have the ability to solve most mechanical, fluid, kinematic, thermal or coupled problems with which we are presented.

  • 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
  • Buoyant 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 efficiently and accurately. The specifications of the cluster are:

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