Modelling and Simulation
We have a long history of creating physical and geometric software models of complex systems and situations, ranging from Formula One suspension kinematics to high energy ballistics. Some examples of our work are described below.
Mathshop's kinematics software maps the suspension motion and forces as the wheels move relative to the chassis.
With its workflow-oriented user interface, it enables designers to quickly evaluate the characteristics of varied geometries. Used by leading F1 and other racing teams and SUFST - Southampton University Formula Student Team, Facebook Homepage, its basis can be traced back to Mathshop's first contract over 30 years ago.
Modelling the rapid sequence of a ballistics launch presents many challenges, and is vital to obtaining the high performance demanded of modern munitions.
Mathshop's recently developed ballistics software guides the designer through the many input parameters, and produces comprehensive graphical results in seconds.
Our thermal and geometric modelling capabilities enabled us to produce a detailed model of LPG offtake from above- and below-ground tanks.
The cooling induced by offtake limits delivery performance, and software modelling this effect enables tank designs to be quickly optimised.
