Following a successful year for NetComposites Enterprise’s Consultancy services, it has extended its design and structural analysis capabilities to include enhanced meshing and laminate analysis.
With the addition of enhanced meshing, NetComposites Enterprise can now analyse complex geometries, producing high quality meshes in shorter timeframes. This includes geometries imported from customers’ own software packages.
The Consultancy Team has also added laminate analysis to its offering. This allows it to evaluate and optimise composite structures on a ply-by-ply basis.
Customers have already seen the benefits of the new offerings and NetComposites Enterprise is delighted with the results. Ben Hargreaves, NetComposites’ Consultancy Manager, said, “The consultancy area of NetComposites Enterprise is growing rapidly and the addition of these capabilities is another demonstration of how NetComposites Enterprise is working to better service the needs of our customers.”
As well as design and structural analysis, NetComposites continues to offer the following services:
