ESAComp software for the UK and Ireland.
ESAComp, developed by Componeering Inc. of Helsinki in Finland, is software for the analysis and design of composite laminates and laminated structural elements.
The development work for ESAComp was initiated by the European Space Agency (ESA/ESTEC), to combine all composite analysis and design capabilities under one unified user interface. From its origins in the aerospace industry, ESAComp has been developed as a general tool dealing with composites, both in industry and in research.
Helsinki University of Technology's Laboratory of Lightweight Structures undertook the original development of ESAComp. In 2000, the development work was transferred to Componeering Inc.
