All of our vibration isolation products have been designed through rigorous system simulation and component analysis which is a critical part of our design process. To ensure feasibility, our engineers look at a project from all perspectives necessary, with a focus on satisfying customer requirements.
Once the component requirements are established, Moog CSA has the ability to rapidly iterate our mechanical designs with SolidWorks® three dimensional modeling and Simulation software. Once this stage is complete, we verify these initial analyses using the dedicated and industry respected finite element code, Nastran®. We have also developed our own internal codes for processing launch vehicle coupled loads analyses, and we have developed many Matlab® Simulink models for real-time active control system development.
System Level Analyses
When the finite element models of our completed designs are complete, we are then able to incorporate math model representations of these designs back into the system models. This is an iterative process which can provide valuable feedback for areas of improvement in the design. Our system level analyses consist of time-domain, frequency-response, random vibration, and stress analysis. Because some of our isolation and damper designs consist of viscoelastic or magnetic materials, we can implement non-linear material properties in our analyses.
Our Analysis Team
Our engineering analysis team receives continual internal training and also stays informed of the latest software tools in order to more effectively and efficiently evaluate a design.
Ensuring a Quality Product Through Analysis
Moog CSA relies heavily on vetting a mechanical design through extensive analysis to ensure a quality product each and every time.
