Analysis and Simulation


Simulation is a vital tool in understanding existing designs and for developing new ones. It's much more than auto-meshing CAD and making "pretty pictures", it's all about finding out what is really going on in a system.

TSI offers a broad range of analysis and simulation services to industries including automotive, aerospace, consumer product, industrial equipment, biomedical and general structures.

TSI's in-house simulation tools include Atair HyperWorks, LSTC LS-DYNA and now ABAQUS\Simulia; all of which are world-leading analysis codes.
