Frewer Engineering's Advanced Composites Division is busy designing a variety of submarine excrescencies in carbon and glass composite materials.
The company says that predicting performance for stiffness and strength under extreme conditions is key. The structures are "thick" composites which require careful finite element analysis to ascertain the true performance in service.
Along with the above, the team are involved in the design and analysis of a variety of aerospace panels which require aerodynamic load mapping to ensure service life. Frewer's composites team is growing with a new member of staff being added in two months time.
