Speaking of aerospace design, as it is easy to guess, we are dealing with a complex topic for which solid training is required. In this discipline, the principles of physics, materials science, and other knowledge related to the design of aircraft and spacecraft are applied.
Experience and specific knowledge are, for example, of absolute importance in the choice of suitable materials for each technical solution. Just as, after all, the same preparation is required to define the profile of an aircraft properly. It’s also important to be able to determine what performance and equipment are needed.
Aerospace design is, in essence, a very complex subject. However, Hypertec Solution technicians, thanks to the experience acquired by numerous collaborations with national and international aerospace agencies and the best companies in the sector, can design complex systems for space missions. And also components for aircraft that will be installed on orbiting stations and structural parts for satellites. With solid experience in aerospace engineering, we deal with structural calculations and simulations to guarantee projects that comply with international regulations.
What we think
Sending something into space is a challenge to our abilities. First of all, we are challenged by the requirements in terms of mass, precision, resistance to loads, and environment. Sending a kilogram into space costs hundreds of thousands of euros: spaces in this area are always limited.
Then we are challenged by the environments in which what we will design will have to stay. An aerospace component will spend most of its life in an environment-space: this environment has very particular characteristics and is highly aggressive, as NASA also testifies.
However, before even arriving in space, an aerospace component must endure the effects of what is called the Launch Environment. In other words, it must be housed in a rocket and sent into orbit, withstanding unusual accelerations and vibrations.
No less important is the so-called Ground Environment, or the environment in which the component is built, tested, and transported which will be very different from the environment in which it will spend the rest of its life. There is no gravity and atmosphere in space but on Earth, of course, yes.
The aerospace design was born to overcome the limits of humanity.
We are challenged by the amount of new information we must access, as well as the rigor and complexity of the methodologies we must master. We aim to raise the quality of the project to levels of excellence and have a basis for building something new.
Then we are challenged by the strict rules we must adhere to and the number of documents to be produced in the design phase. What was said in the paper age is increasingly accurate: the weight of the documentation to print would be greater than that of the component to which it refers.
We are also challenged by the extremely formalized and complex way in which it is necessary to manage the project, combined with the need to collaborate with people who may have very different skills and backgrounds from ours.
Designing an aerospace component can be exciting. In doing so, you experience firsthand that you are participating in something that helps, in every respect, to increase the knowledge and progress of all humanity.
Design according to aerospace standards
The formulation of aeronautical requirements is the starting point for each of our projects. A clear definition of these requirements allows our designers to develop a technical proposal suited to the client’s needs.
Experimental test design services, as well as support during their execution. To complete the analysis phase, we examine every data acquired. These are fundamental activities for the validation of any aerospace project. Other recurring activities are strain gauge analyzes, vibrating bench tests, thermal tests, mechanical fatigue, wear, and corrosion tests.
Structural analyzes allow you to calculate the behavior of a mechanical system, obtaining displacements, deformations and stresses present within the material. Using these tools and knowing the results of these analyses, it is possible to optimize each component’s static or fatigue resistance to achieve the duration requirements required of each mechanical group.
CFD fluid dynamics analysis
CFD analyzes allow you to calculate the fluid dynamic behavior of a system. They are, in fact, the most advanced tool that engineers have at their disposal to be able to create performing products. Through the CFD analysis, it is possible to improve the analyzed components’ aerodynamic behavior and probe phenomena that otherwise could be difficult to observe, improving efficiency even for extreme operations.
The advantage of using FEM and CFD simulations is the possibility of studying a system’s behaves as if it were already in operational condition. In the analysis phase, its strengths and weaknesses are already highlighted to carry out the necessary optimizations.
