Engineering Consulting

Over the last 15 years, we have conducted technology transfer projects for companies from different sectors, providing engineering and consulting services. Feel free to contact me for information on how we can help your company.

The group’s vocation related to applied research and engineering projects begins in the PI previous stage in the industry, before starting his doctoral studies, working on projects in the automotive sector for companies such as SEAT, Groupe PSA, Matra, Proton, Nissan Motor Iberica, Solvay, Lear Corporation, Iveco-Irisbus, RAAC, Saab AB, etc. hired by IDIADA Automotive Technology SA.

We have available the best facilities and equipment and we are experts at an international level, in:

  • Application of measurement techniques in fluid mechanics:
    • Hot wire anemometry
    • Acoustic Doppler Velocimetry (ADV)
    • Flow quantification: Planar and volumetric particle imaging velocimetry (PIV). Particle Tracking velocimetry (PTV)
    • Flow visualisation, high-speed imaging, advanced image processing
    • Surface pressure measurements in scale models
    • Measurements of aero / hydrodynamic loads in structures
  • Application of measurement techniques in solid / structural mechanics:
    • Dynamic response of structures
    • Modal analysis and testing (in-house codes for modal testing of structures)
    • Vibrational and impact analysis
    • Analysis of the dynamics of rigid bodies in 3D
    • 3D deformation analysis in elastic bodies
    • Non-intrusive optical 3D and planar measurement systems (PTV, DDPIV, DIC, etc …)
  • Design of measurement systems, equipment, sensors, experiments
    • Design of small scale experiments
    • Custom test stations
    • Software design for data acquisition / processing
    • Design and manufacturing of scale models and complex mechanical parts (machining, 3D printing, etc.)
  • Computational mechanics and simulation
    • Advanced structural calculations
    • Structural dynamics
    • Modal analysis
    • Analysis of non-stationary flows and wakes and their interaction with structures

We have worked in problems related to: Flow-induced vibrations and their mitigation, modal analysis of complex structures, vibration isolation, automotive testing, aerodynamic testing of complex structures, ocean structures monitoring, wind loads on structures, wind attenuation barriers, wind monitoring applications, impact loads on composite structures, fatigue loads on heavy duty machinery, etc. Some our recent customers in the last 15 years are:

  • Institut de Recerca en Energia de Catalunya (IREC)
  • Alstom Wind
  • BP (British Petroleoum Exploration Co.)
  • US Navy (Naval Surface Warface Center, Carderock Division)
  • Office of Architecture (OAB)  / SOG Design Architects (Barcelona / Singapore)
  • Essity
  • IKEA
  • IDIADA Automotive Technology SA
  • etc.
