Advanced Composite Structures at Frewer Engineering

The composite design consultancy at Frewer Engineering says it continues to develop extremely advanced solutions for the design of weight critical and function critical components.

The need to optimise structures and spit out information for manufacture is critical, and the company says its software tools perform progressive failure analysis along with non linear analysis (buckling etc) of composite structures, giving customers lighter weight and higher strength solutions in carbon / glass epoxy materials.

Working with honeycomb (Nomex® & Al Alloy 3D) sandwich structures, using the company's internally developed and proven design techniques, means its customers receive advanced solutions that are highly predictable when in service.

Using composite specific design tools from SIEMENS NX, MSC & Analgyph, allows Frewer to provide an unparalleled service to industry, it says. Several of its design staff have 30 years experience in composite design & structural analysis along with design for manufacture, experience which it says takes the risk out of composite component development.
