At GIVE we try our best to not just satisfy our customers but amaze them. Keeping our team always learning and developing, we strive to improve our quality and deliver innovative solutions. Engineering Analysis has always been our strongest asset either we talk for a complete product development or we support our customers with specific stages of a design analysis.
Starting from our corner stone which traditionally has been the whole spectrum of structural analyses, we have built significant expertise on a multitude of simulation types.
We can simulate what we can imagine
Advanced Structural Analysis
Through state-of-art FEM software, hand calculations and unique in-house developed tools, we are able to simulate, predict and tune a product’s real behavior accurately. We can see if it will break, wear, or perform, without the need for expensive prototyping and testing. GIVE and its engineers have extensive experience in advanced simulation tools and a solid theoretical background on structural analysis. The world of motorsports and F1 has taught us how to strive for speed and accuracy, as well as to always pay attention to detail. Some of the most representative analyses are:
- Linear Analysis
- Quasi-static Analysis
- Full Assemblies Simulation
- Dynamic/Crash Simulations & Impact
- Thermo-mechanical Analysis
- Frequency Response & Modal Analysis
- Durability & Fatigue
- Advanced Material Modelling
- Composite Material Analysis
Today, structural analysis expertise is not complete without optimisation capabilities. Our passion for efficient structures puts optimization in the center of all design, analysis and development work we do. From topology to morphing, metals to composites, we cover all the modern optimization methods.
- Shape Optimization
- Size Optimization
- Composites optimization
- Design for Manufacturing
