Simulation

Computer simulation presents a massive benefit to all aspects of technology and engineering. The flexibility of computer simulation means it can be applied to molecular dynamics and as easily to the motion of galaxies in space. It can be developed to have awareness of any measurable quantity and include subtle and strong interactions between each, to whatever complexity the computing hardware can accommodate. It can be used to evaluate a single system or optimise over a range of designs in a design ‘space’. It can predict mechanical and fluid dynamic behaviours of concepts well before engineering design occurs. It can also be used to study failures of existing parts, helping to piece together the failure modes and develop robust countermeasures.
 
As a result of this extreme flexibility, virtually any engineering project can draw benefit from its use. Race car aerodynamics is routinely studied in fluid simulation tools. Their motions and structural deflections are studied with mechanical simulation, both of the stress and deformation of their parts as well as the motion of suspension systems and of the whole body over a track surface. Thermal models are used to study heating and cooling systems and their effectiveness, as well as the influence of parasitic heat sources on surrounding structures.
 
We have at COLLINS LIMITED a wide experience with simulation, from the use of existing software on problems, to developing new and bespoke simulation codes, to researching new and emerging simulation techniques. With a full range of expertise in the field, we have the ability to provide you with the best computer simulation methods, whether they already exist or need to be written custom to your needs.
