Our mission - to support you in your dimensioning process
Our design office, specialising in numerical simulations since 1986, has diversified in order to offer a global approach to product validation that articulates and synchronises all the disciplines of numerical simulation, testing and optimisation of complex systems. Now, this unique experience enables us to support our clients during the exploration and validation phases. This approach is included through complementary technological blocks to benefit the needs of our partners and clients.
Our technological blocks enable us to meet the most challenging demands of the industrial sector
Reduce dimensioning cycles
Control development costs
Numerical simulations and multiphysical computations
For more than 30 years, our teams have been qualifying the performance of digital tools on a daily basis, and investigating new solutions in order to invest in new digital models for each of the physics that we can address. Our teams regularly demonstrate on industrial applications the effectiveness of digital simulation for the benefit of reducing design time and costs associated with physical tests, when it is used upstream of the dimensioning process. Our computational solutions and our teams, with a commitment to achieving results, guarantee the responses to the needs for evaluating the performance of products in their environment for loads of various types.
Implicit linear/nonlinear calculation
Statics, quasi-statics, modal analysis, contact, plasticity, bending
Fatigue – Durability
S-N and E-N curves, cracking, Haigh, Rainflow, Random vibrations
Covering crashes, security, impact, explosion, fast dynamics
CFD - Thermal
Aeraulics, aerodynamics, fluid-structure coupling, thermal exchanges, hydraulics
Biomechanics, kinematics, rigid or deformable bodies, dynamics
Aero-acoustics, noise, comfort, NVH, vibro-acoustics
Antennas, sensors, EMC, circuits, rotating machines
Stamping, extrusion, additive manufacturing, forging, plastic molding, welding
As a result, our confidence lies in the ability of digital tools to significantly strengthen development processes.
Custom tests and multi-material characterisation
Thanks to its experience, CIMES can offer custom test campaigns on the client site. Real-life tests provide an image of the behaviour of structures in their real environment.
Laboratory bench tests can reduce costs and ensure reproducibility for a better understanding of the physical phenomena involved.
We carry out mechanical tests on all types of materials. The means at our disposal allow us to characterise the behaviour of materials up to breaking point over a wide range of strain rates and temperatures.
Distribution of calculation and decision support software
Specialising in digital simulation services, CIMES distributes several reference software solutions. Through this commitment associated with digital transformation, our teams dedicated to the development of digital tools, support the development of new simulation solutions through long-standing partnerships. Our offer includes three supports:
Distribution of calculation and simulation software
Training in digital tools
Technical support and advanced support
Optimisation and data management
New optimisation strategies, implemented by CIMES, support innovation for increasingly complex products by simultaneously synchronising and exploring all design requirements. CIMES regularly demonstrates the effectiveness of multidisciplinary optimisation (MDO) for industrial applications, which offers its best potential when used prior to the design process.
IoT and connected sensors
Connected and intelligent sensors for mobility and infrastructure
The connected autonomous sensors developed by CIMES measure the characteristic physical parameters of your equipment, your vehicles, and your industrial or architectural infrastructures in real time.
Methodological development and outsourced R&D services
Our design office is developing a continuous innovation policy with the aim of constantly improving the reliability and precision of dimensioning processes. To do this, we dedicate specific development teams to the deployment of new methodologies allowing us to intervene from the design through to the approval of new products. We support the birth of new projects by maintaining the main fundamentals that govern the industrial sector: controlling the costs in the development of optimised and efficient products.
