Weatherhaven Global Solutions is the perfect name for the products developed. Their protection solutions range from mobile medical facilities to enclosures for helicopters. Typical FEA analysis is on the structural membrane to various weather specifications. Snow and Wind loading demands can be quite extreme. ADSK Nastran ‘In-CAD’ used to calculate deflections and stresses. Lightweight metal structure with canvas covers modelled using shell and beam elements.
Stru-Mech Design based in West Yorkshire, is a small Engineering Consultancy Company specializing in the design of bespoke mechanical handling and lifting systems. They use Inventor for design and ADSK Nastran ‘In-CAD’ for stress analysis. They have a varied client base, however, their expertise is sought after normally when there are some structurally demanding performance issues that require a high level of structural analysis to strict industry standards.
More client examples of ADSK Nastran ‘In-CAD’ being used within SolidWorks.
At this company the software is helping to Design Communication Antennae’s for various applications. Typical Wind loading performance issues, which include the study of the effects of vortex induced vibrations on the structure. Routinely use ADSK Nastran ‘In-CAD’ on the sub-components that make up the assembly including the ‘Ape Guard’ which is one of the most important auxiliary components supplied. Ape damage is a major problem in many locations around the world.
