Aerospace Design

Darchem collaborate with our clients to design to optimal thermal protection systems.

Fluid Analysis (Computational Fluid Dynamics - CFD)

Darchem use CFD to optimise the design of our intakes, exhausts and silencers for Naval and Marine market.

Stress Analysis
(Finite Element Analysis)

FEA allows our engineers to design products, which are compliant to client and design standard requirements, without expensive testing. This is particularly useful on complex designs where standard calculations are not suitable.
