General Computational Methods/Analysis

The technical staff of DYNAMIC ANALYSIS (DA) focuses on the application of computational methods for the solution of dynamic problems. DA's analytical expertise encompasses the following fields: linear superposition structural analyses, computational fluid dynamics (CFD), nonlinear system analysis, and coupled analyses including fluid/thermal/structural, kinematic/dynamic-structural, FSI and solver coupling that involves the development of FLUENT-ANSYS and FLUENT-Algor heat flux/temperature transfer routines. Our staff, most of whom have Ph.D.-level qualifications, includes experts in the fields of dynamic fracture, solver manipulation, model reduction and preprocessing techniques.

The computing resources of DA include a 16 processor Linux cluster supercomputer as well as numerous engineering workstations with maximum RAM and SCSI disks.
