Design for AM/3DP: Simulation and Topology Optimisation
ASL provide our clients with the opportunity to evaluate AM solutions via advanced non-linear FEA and CFD simulation, prior to manufacture. Our simulation services include structural, thermal transfer, magnetics and fluid dynamics. Harnessing our advanced simulation capabilities, we can also offer multi-physics driven topology optimisation to address structural, thermal and magnetic requirements.
Maximising efficiency using advanced simulation
At ASL we use a range of advance simulation tools to evaluate the complexity Design for Additive Manufacture (DfAM) offers. Our computational team are able to model and simulate multi-physics applications that cover mechanical, thermal, electrical and magnetic loading (FEA), as well as the analysis of fluid flow (CFD) within complex design solutions.
Harnessing AM/3DP benefits using multi-physics driven topology optimisation
AM/3DP allows us to make parts with almost unlimited complexity in a range of highly functional materials. This complexity can be used to add significant value to a part, such as enhanced multi-functional performance and lightweighting via latticing or topology optimisation.

Working in partnership
Our clients are at the heart of every project. That’s why we’re happy to accommodate any specific needs you might have, including intellectual property ownership and non-disclosure agreements.
Clients retain ownership of intellectual property
We understand how important your IP is to our customers. Unlike many research bodies, we ensure that you get to keep full ownership of any foreground IP developed through our research.
Strict non-disclosure agreements
We work with global companies on highly strategic and confidential projects. We will never publish or share any research created through client projects without permission.
