Other Simulation Services

If you have taken the time to look through the simulation services portion of the website, you know that PADT offers a wide array of capabilities in the area of numerical simulation of mechanical systems. However, those pages only cover the more common services that PADT offers. The engineering staff at PADT can do much more.

A Full solution

If a physical behavior can be represented using some sort of equations, or combination of equations, PADT can build simulation models to capture that behavior.  When possible, we use the ANSYS suite of simulation tools.  When those cannot capture what is needed, we turn to more general tools such as Mathamatica, Matlab, and even Microsoft Excel.  The limit is really only in making sure we have accurate equations and the proper inputs.

Some of less common types of simulation that PADT is capable of doing are:

  • Acoustics
  • Extrusion, Thermoforming, Blow Molding, Glass Forming, Fiber Drawing
  • Electro-mechanical systems
  • Hybrid Power Systems, Battery Systems, Electric Motor Design
  • Moisture Diffusion
  • Optics
  • Orbital Mechanics

Pre and Post Processing

PADT conducts pre and post processing for every simulation model we build.  We also offer pre and post processing as a service to our customers.  This is often a very attractive alternative to acquiring tools and the knowledge to conduct difficult pre and post processing tasks in house, which can drastically reduce the time needed to get useful simulation results.

Some of the pre and post processing areas that PADT can offer are:

  • Geometry translation between CAD systems
  • Geometry repair
  • Geometry simplification for meshing
  • Meshing: tetrahedral (TET), Hexahedral (HEX), shells, beams, and mixes
  • Mesh translation between different simulation tools
  • Material model development, including custom material model programming
  • Implementation of custom life and fatigue methods
  • Special post processing
  • Creating plots, portable 3D images, and result data files
  • Creation of reports
