  • Highly Non-Linear, Explicit (Abaqus, LS-DYNA, ANSYS)
  • Class A Surfaces

Aerospace Design

Modern aerospace systems are becoming increasingly complex and interconnected, while still being expected to meet stringent performance, reliability, and safety requirements. SC Solutions staff are well versed with analysis of complex space systems and components, including small and large complex spacecraft, propellant tanks, antennas etc. We design such complex systems from a holistic approach, starting from conceptual design through preliminary design review, detailed analysis, and critical design review.
