Sports, biomedical and consumer goods: in these areas where performance is central, our knowledge acquired on multi-physics issues can support the development of innovative and competitive products.
By definition, the world of sport is looking for performance, whether it is the development of equipment or the analysis and optimization of sportsmanship. Our simulation tools make it possible to accelerate the development of sports equipment by taking into account normative or representative tests of their use, while guaranteeing an optimal quality/performance ratio with regard to the cost and the feasibility of the products. Our teams can explore all types of materials, from metals to composite materials, including foams and elastomers.
Implants, prostheses and medical devices; the development of these products often uses innovative materials and processes. Today, additive manufacturing helps to customize implants for bone reconstruction after injuries that occurred during illness or accident. Our numerical simulation tools make it possible to optimise, validate and test medical devices before clinical trials. Our teams can also model the biological and physiological phenomena in the cardiovascular, nervous, articular or muscular systems.
The reduction of time-to-market is a key element in the development of a consumer good. Numerical simulation can meet the growing demand of the consumer markets for quality, ergonomics, safety, product durability and reduced energy consumption. Our interventions aim at providing fast and multidisciplinary optimisation: electromagnetic compatibility, impact resistance, tightness, reduction of complexity and number of components, and miniaturisation, etc.
