CAD/CAE SERVICES


Product Design & Development by CAD/CAE

Design Capability

PDSL provides engineering services across the entire spectrum of CAD and CAE. It strives to provide clients with services spanning all facets of product development, starting with concept design, right through to the entire design lifecycle.

PDSL has both technology and CAD/CAE/CAM tools expertise, and has the necessary infrastructure to quickly and effectively support its customer’s needs, thereby significantly reducing the turn-around time.

PDSL has highly skilled resources, hailing from a wide spectrum of industries like aerospace and general engineering. PDSL ensures reduced design costs and cycle time without compromising on the quality by adopting industry’s best practices, well established quality process and also by constantly assessing and improving its processes and quality systems through quality certifications to be instead with changing market trends and business scenarios.

Concept Design Capability

With customer’s first-cut inputs on a) design intent, b) product requirements and functionalities, and c) products’ specifications, PDSL can suggest options for product configuration while taking into account the cost and manufacturing constraints if any.
Detailed Design Capability

PDSL detailed design capability provide optimum design taking into account the cost, functionalities, the strength & stiffness, design, manufacturing and serviceability constraints. The final drawings and models will be created as per design standards pre-specified by the customer.

Key deliverables: BOM, CNC Models, Lofts, Manufacturing Drawings, Material, Weight & CG, Strength Report, Assembly and Installation drawings – Handed and unhanded parts.

Design Optimization / Redesign services

For products that have already been designed, PDSL provides the service of identification of mode of failure, design optimization based upon design constraints, re-design for cost reductions and for changes in the manufacturing process. Optimization is carried out
using multi-disciplinary as well as multi- level approaches by harnessing PDSL expertise in design and analysis.

ENGINEERING ANALYSIS


Engineering Analysis

PDSL’s analysis capability is backed by a team of qualified and experienced analysts. The latter have the competency in employing hand-calculations approach and in the numerical way of Finite Element analysis, thereby reaping the inherent benefits from both methods for the benefit of the customer. PDSL’s engineers can address the problem in the first-time-right manner to meet the customers’ exact needs. Its engineers are adept in using CAE tools such as MSC Patran and Nastran, Ansys Classic & Workbench, Hypermesh, MathCAD, ESDU Data sheets, etc., for meshing the models and for analysis purposes.

FE Modeling and Analysis

PDSL can provide complete support in the area of preprocessing, which includes, high quality mesh generation for all types of components to suit analysis needs. Appropriate mesh will be generated based on the structural feature, type of analysis, load path, or to meet customer specific requirements. PDSL can also provide its services in the creation of FE mesh for specialized needs such as Macro Generation for load application, Sandwich mesh generation for components which have zone transitioning from thin to thick, and so on.

Detail Stress Analysis

After obtaining the overall loads, detail stress analysis is carried out using FEM/Classical Engineering Methods depending on the type of component to be analyzed. Analysis is carried out for various loads using linear, non-linear, buckling, contact analysis techniques, etc. to obtain sectional strength, fatigue life and buckling stress. Stress, strain, deformation, Margins of Safety, Reserve factor, etc. are derived. If required, the corrective design exercise can be carried out wherever negative margins/excessive deformation were noticed. The final documentation is provided in a format required by the customer.

Fatigue and Damage Tolerance Analysis

PDSL has expertise in carrying out the Fatigue and Damage Tolerance analysis through hand calculations (with in-house and software supplied by the clients) as well as FE tools like MSC Nastran, etc. It has capability of predicting the full fatigue life of a new component with necessary inspection intervals and the residual life of the in-service components. PDSL can design fatigue modifications necessary to get the desired life on damaged aircraft components.

Dynamic Analysis

Dynamic analysis includes estimation of fundamental natural frequencies of structures. Evaluation of Dynamic response under the influence of various time-dependent loads such as random vibration, harmonic, shock and other transient dynamic analysis such as bird impact and crash analysis can be carried out.

Thermal Analysis

Estimation of temperature distribution, heat flux, heat flows etc. for steady and transient conditions, of heat transfer problems such as conduction, convection and radiation can be addressed.
