Aerospace Structural Analysis, Design, Modification, Enhancement, Optimisation and Certification

We have a long and established pedigree within the aerospace industry, with a wide range of longstanding clients that we have supported with conceptual studies or complete designs, to modifications and enhancements.

The aerospace industry presents unique challenges well suited to the skills and experience of Cascade Engineering, helping customers deliver projects on time, on cost and most of all providing improved performance you can depend on.

We cover the complete range of military and civil aerospace companies and platforms, providing a wide range of services from analysis and optimisation of existing structures through to the design and certification of new aircraft. Our knowledge of the industry’s regulations and environment, together with the diligence of our team, combine to meet and exceed your aerospace project challenges.

We understand that each project is different, from small simple modifications of legacy aircraft to the complex design of new major structures, but we use the same proven process for all. We know the key to delivering the right solution is to fully understand the problem and the business case that supports this change or improvement, from an initial design concept through to third party certification. This allows us to deliver solutions that meet both the engineering and commercial requirements.

To benefit from an aerospace structural partner who can improve quality and reduce the time to deliver solutions, call us on +44 1252 594121 or email info@cascade-engineering.co.uk.

Production support involves the design and analysis associated to critical tasks that are at the core of shipbuilding. This can range from jigs and fixtures to unit lifting and turning, block movements and sea fastenings. Our focus on safe and efficient processes with stakeholder involvement means savings in time and money for both Design and Operations, giving the whole project the best chance of success.

We also help consortia to meet their social value requirements, working with locally-hired teams to enhance skills and build long-term value in shipbuilding and port localities. This reduces the need to recruit large, temporary teams and invests in a sustainable local workforce.

Structural design

From designing equipment seats to designing large components using traditional steel or composite materials, our structural design and analysis expertise has been used across complex marine projects to improve performance.

We work closely with all teams, including Classification Societies like Lloyds Register, and end clients such as the UK Ministry of Defence to develop appropriate approaches and ensure that requirements are understood and met at each stage of the project. Our experience liaising with manufacturers makes us an ideal choice and a trusted partner.

DefenceDefence Structural Analysis, Design, Modification, Enhancement, Optimisation and Certification

Our ability to provide robust, repeatable, certified designs and modifications with our strong pedigree in the defence industry has seen us become a key partner to many national and international defence customers.

With an unflinching focus on attention to detail, we can integrate with our defence customers’ design process to implement modifications and enhancements that have been proven to improve performance. With a vast amount of experience on defence platforms, we fully understand the mission critical nature of the industry and how to implement changes and improvements in the most effective way.

Our engineering service allows customers to design structures from concept, or commission optimisation studies to understand how defence vehicles perform and where the most cost-effective improvements can be made. This can lead to modifications or enhancements of existing structures, to a certified level, guaranteeing the quality of the solutions and, ultimately, the performance. We see our role as a partner who can help reduce the time and effort required to deliver a solution while leveraging off our experience from other defence platforms and our 100% project delivery rate.
