CIMES is an engineering and consultancy firm which specialises in numerical simulation applied to the mechanical behaviour of structures and the characterisation of the fluid flows.

Our business :

- Study and calculation by finite elements in order to assess and optimize the static and vibratory behaviour of the structures under realistic or regulatory loads
- Assessment and diagnosis in order to re-evaluate the existing structures, identify the causes of the disorders, and offer strengthening solutions
- Temporary placement of calculation engineers on site in order to support teams or bring supplementary skills
- Engineering of the testing systems in order to design experimental devices, measure and exploit the results
- Distribution of modelling and calculation software
- Research and development

Our particularity :

- A highly qualified team in numerical simulation with strong cross-disciplinary skills in regulations, engineering practice, instrumentation and experimentation
- The development of large size finite elements models with the contact management and consideration of the geometric and material non-linearity
- The implementation of multi-physical simulations with chaining or coupling of complex phenomena (thermo-mechanics, fluid-structure interaction, etc.)
- The mastery of the most advanced structure and fluid mechanics calculation software: ANSYS, NASTRAN, RADIOSS, LS-DYNA, CFX, FLUENT, etc.
- The development of business specific tools around the main commercial codes for specific analysis
- The use of a calculation platform made out of 64 bits multiprocessor machines and a supercomputer with more than 200GFlops
- The efficiency, the accuracy and the speed of the solutions implemented.
