The Applied Science practice develops software to solve challenging engineering problems, answer novel or emerging questions and serve niche applications not addressed by off-the-shelf packages. When providing solutions involving proprietary intellectual property or national security, we have a proven record for safeguarding our client’s information and products.
We produce custom solutions at the level of complexity our clients need – from simple engineering tools to high-fidelity physics-based simulation codes. Options include stand-alone tools with or without a graphical user interface; technology modules for larger packages; middleware to connect packages; and templates, examples and expert guidance.
We develop advanced material constitutive models to simulate nonlinear response and failure of structural materials such as metals, composites, hybrids and granular materials.
We develop advanced analytical approaches for wave propagation, acoustics, material/metamaterial homogenization and uncertainty quantification.
We also develop and distribute commercial, high-fidelity software:
• The Flex family of finite-element codes, including PZFlex.
• WALAIR computational fluid dynamics software.
• VistaMat, a trio of powerful, interrelated software tools that facilitates advanced material modeling and brings new functionality to the most widely used finite-element programs.
