Mechanical design :
The first step of the design is to assess the specifications in coordination with the scientists. After this step, the design office elaborates an in silico model of the pieces with the "Solid Works" CAD program. The process is then validated by the scientists and the plans are transmitted to the machine shop facility.
The static structural analysis (linear and non linear) are performed by the finite element program "CosmosWorks". Results are of the type "displacements", "stresses" or "security coefficients".
