We support our customers in all phases of mechanical design, starting from specifications and feasibility studies up to detailed design.
We aim to provide engineering services in various industrial sectors, such as aerospace, motorsport, wind energy, pumps and turbomachinery, maritime, oil & gas and power generation.
We support start-ups and structured companies in the development of new products by coordinating project management, (re)design, engineering, problem solving and prototype construction.
Here is an example:
We are able to perform fluid-dynamic analyses in the automotive, aeronautical, piping, heating – ventilation – air conditioning (HVAC), pumps, turbines and turbomachinery, and energy sectors.
We perform CFD calculations of aerodynamics, turbulent flows, pressure losses, noise and cavitation.
We perform CFD simulations that model combustion, heat transfer, heating and cooling, by analysing heat transfer, conservation and loss.
All analyses can be coupled with our optimisation algorithms that modify geometries to increase performance.
We use FEM finite element structural calculations to analyse structures in isotropic and composite materials and to verify stresses and deformations.
It is used in the design of plants, components, machines, in order to reduce weight, costs and risks.
We can couple CFD simulations and FEM structural analyses to accurately model fluid-structure interaction phenomena.
These verifications are mainly used in the design of turbines and in the fields of marine and aeronautical engineering.
Other applications can be found in the biomedical field with the creation of models that simulate the behaviour of arteries, aneurysms and prostheses.
Here is an example:
We plan functional and effective experimental test campaigns:
We design test benches to carry out the following types of experimental measurements:
We support the customer in the selection of measuring instruments, sensors, remote data acquisition and download modules able to allow real-time control of experimental tests.
We provide support at the customer’s facility during experimental and bench tests to verify that the prototype meets the design requirements.
Custom tool development
We program software that accelerates and automates the design process.
In this way, the designer spends less time on repetitive tasks and can take more time on complex and innovative projects.
We can develop simulation software that can estimate the performance of complex products, processes and systems.
We build digital models, or digital twins, of the environment or machine, providing information about the state and efficiency of the system.
These analytical models can be coupled with optimisation algorithms to obtain optimal operating parameters and efficient geometries.
Design and artificial intelligence is not a very common combination.
At Nablawave, we develop software based on neural networks to accelerate design and simulation processes in the field of engineering.
Here is an example:
One day four young engineers joking about starting a company felt it was time to do so.
The ingredients were all there: high skills, organizational and entrepreneurial mindset, determination, and above all the desire to offer value and change the industrial world. Utopian? Time has proven that utopy becomes reality.
