Stress calculation and CFD

Etteplan is renowned for its competence in strength calculation when safety and durability are key product requirements in addition to cost-efficient design. Etteplan’s experts are often an integral part of customer’s engineering processes and in charge of strength calculations of demanding product development projects.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

Physical measurements and mock-up experiments are costly and time consuming – and in some cases impossible to conduct. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) provides a cost-efficient and reliable solution. Our CFD services include models and calculations to visualize results, improve material and energy efficiency as well as to reduce physical measurements. 

The direct benefits of CFD come from reduced unit and operating cost and reduced costs for prototyping and measurement. However, the benefits of CFD go beyond the actual models and calculations. Apart from serving the engineers with more precise calculations and simulations, CFD provides technical performance charts, design optimization, excellent marketing material, and 3D-digital prints of the results.
