Aerospace industry

The international aerospace industry has a number of special requirements that it needs to meet, such as strict safety regulations, reduction of environmental impact and high cost pressure. Innovative solutions are required for the further development of aircraft, missiles, space vehicles and satellites. We have been considered a reliable partner by customers in the aerospace industry for years, based on our expertise and experience in lightweight design, aerodynamics, thermodynamics and analysis and design of components and materials. We have recently completed a research project on ‘Turbine splinter protection for gliders' in cooperation with Esslingen University of Applied Sciences.

Our core expertise for the aerospace industry

Structure simulation

Structure simulation is used to calculate structural stress, improve material characteristics and reduce weight. Typical applications in the aerospace industry include baggage holders, seat mountings, hydraulic pumps, load distribution and connection concepts for side walls and ceilings.

Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

Numerical computational fluid dynamics (CFD) calculates processes which occur as gases and fluids flow over surfaces. Typical fields of application in the aerospace industry include drive systems, aerodynamics, hydraulics, air conditioning and fuel feed systems. 



The use of different mathematical calculation methods identifies optimisation potential for individual components or component groups regarding their weight or other properties. Analysis results are incorporated into the development process just the once or as part of a continuous improvement process. Typical fields of application in the aerospace industry include components in landing gear, the wings and overall structures, components in turbines, the body or cabin and optimisation of structure-flow phenomena.


NVH (Noise, Vibration, Harshness)

NVH calculations allow conclusions to be drawn on how to implement improvements regarding acoustics, vibrations and comfort. Typical fields of application in aircraft construction include interior acoustics in cockpits and cabins

Multi-body system simulation

Multi-body system simulation is primarily used for rigid body calculation for powertrains and landing gear components as well as kinematic simulation of articulated joints and drives. The calculation speed of multi-body system simulation enables complex modules such as entire landing gears to be easily mapped and integrated into control circuits.

System simulation

System simulation is used to examine highly complex overall systems in which many sub-systems interact. Mapping and simulating such a system is a supreme discipline: the physical properties of all components and sub-systems which are interconnected with each other and exert influence on one another must be described in a mathematically correct way and their behaviour evaluated. It is essential not to lose sight of the overall system as a sum of all parts for all details. TECOSIM has specialised in 1D simulation.
