The SOTO Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) team provides advanced engineering analysis capabilities as a direct service to you and also as internal support of other engineering projects within SOTO. Our engineers are highly skilled and experienced in the use of simulation software to help you solve real-world engineering problems and optimise your engineering project.
Combined with our multi-disciplinary engineering and simulation capabilities, we can provide you with an optimised, timely and cost effective engineering solution tailored to meet your specific requirements/specifications and relevant engineering standards.
We have extensive experience in the application advanced computational analysis and numerical simulation including:
Our computational analysis services include:
Providing high end Finite Element Analysis for structural/thermal assessment of mechanical components and structures including metal alloys (creep and fatigue), reinforced/pre/post tensioned concrete, refractory and FRP composite materials.
Fluid dynamics/heat transfer assessment of fluid flow problems including multicomponent/multiphase modeling, chemical reactions and combustion as well as fluid-structure interaction.
Particle flow assessment of problems with bulk solids flow including modeling of non-spherical particle size distributions, breakage and attrition, material arching, materials characterisation and testing.
Event simulation for mine layout design, mine system/process modeling and logistics planning, material flow/debottlenecking as well as simulation and production rate/milestone prediction capabilities.
We have extensive experience in the application of advanced computational analysis techniques of:
SOTO has dedicated High Performance Computing (HPC) facilities for numerical simulation which can significantly reduce the solution time of complex simulation models and allow the delivery of engineering solutions to you in a timely manner.
