As a broad based professional engineering firm, we offer a wide range of services to ensure that our clients maintain a competitive edge on their market share.PDT offers services to Tier 1 customers to help optimize their design and prove out the materials life cycle to ensure cost-savings.Our goal is meet or exceed your expectations by delivering innovative yet practical solutions so that a value-added contributions has been made for your and our benefit.

Our services include:

  • Consulting
  • Design of nanoscale to very large structures
  • Failure analysis Experiments to validate simulations
  • Finite element analysis
  • Atomistic analysis

Software Models

  • Internal State Variable Plasticity-Damage Model: Accurately predicts the microstructural and history dependent mechanical behavior of metals
  • Microstructurally sensitive multistage fatigue model: Accurately predicts the life of a component in service by taking into account the microstructure as well as the external boundary conditions
  • Compaction Model: Accurately predicts the green powder metal geometry resulting from the compaction process
  • Sintering Model: Accurately predicts the microstructure resulting from sintering green powder metal products
  • Thermoplastic Inelasticity-Damage Model: Accurately predicts the deformation and fracture of thermoplastics
