Engineering Analysis Consultancy : Medical and Composites

With Finite Element Analysis becoming a key element in both the design process and regulatory submissions of medical devices and implants; MAATS can offer a comprehensive analysis service using state of the art software. MAATS engineers can provide detailed numerical analysis of composite materials. Previous projects have included the assessment of Carbon Fibre and Glass Fibre Reinforced materials.

Medical

 

  • Humeral implants and the interaction of each design with the surrounding musculoskeletal structure.
  • Inter-vertebral disc implants; analysing the lumbar region for axial static stresses and fatigue.
  • Cannulas and catheters; assessment of critical buckling and plastic collapse.
  • Cardiovascular stents and valves; investigation of material behaviour due to a pulsatile load, coupled with the effect of fatigue and nonlinear viscoplasticity.
Medical and Composites

Composites

 

  • Advanced software to assess composites including isotropic, anisotropic, orthotropic and hyper-elastic materials.
  • Linear and non linear analyses of composite lamina structures with complex 3D geometry.
  • Results processing includes ply failure theories: Hill, Hoffman, Tsai-Wu, Max strain, Max stress or Max transverse shear.
  • Critical and post buckling assessments can be undertaken to ensure structural stability.
