Face your next structural engineering challenge with leading researchers on your side.

We plan, customize and execute research for companies who seek to elevate beyond the industry standard.

Talk to our engineers

We are widely recognized experts as professors and academic researchers.

Our academic ties come with bleeding edge knowledge, and we use this knowledge to help our clients.

Areas of expertise & typical outputs

From aerospace and building systems, to designing the small implements which support solar panels, we constantly use new materials, new methods, and the conflux of both.

Physics-based modeling & simulations

Physics-based modeling & simulations

Understand your product's behavior through high-fidelity simulations of physical phenomena. Materialize new ideas. Optimize your design approach. Our range of analyses replace the costly and time-consuming use of laboratory experiments. Our theoretical strength lets the experiments we do run validate powerful models.

Metals

Metals

Profit from the extreme efficiency, rapid manufacturing/construction, economical cost and limitless shapes of thin-walled structures. Reckon with the unparalleled performance of metallic foam and next generation alloys. Rely on engineers who are writing the rules for using these materials.

Topology optimization

Topology optimization

Quickly obtain the most structurally efficient designs for parts. Harness the power of additive manufacturing and emerging materials to design lightweight and multifunctional components for structures, aircraft, UAVs, telescopes, and thermal management systems.

Reliability & Resilience

Reliability & Resilience

Minimize risk and uncertainty. Predict failure based on loading history for engineered systems where safety margins are paramount. Surpass the typical design check with the results of advanced methods funded by the National Science Foundation.

Design & Development

Design & Development

Evaluate, improve, and patent new products using structural performance experiments, analysis and design tools devised to your needs. Envision and achieve big picture results when you engage us at concept. High-tech fluency sets you bounds apart.
