Aerospace and Defense
PDT provides clients with advanced modeling/simulation, materials characterization, and experimental technologies in the aerospace and defense industries.
We have experience with a wide range of core engineering competencies to help lightweight safer designs.
We can address the breadth of materials such as metals, polymers, and ceramics and associated composites.
PDT provides clients with advanced modeling/simulation and experimental technologies in the automotive industries for OEMs, Tier 1 companies, and Tier 2 companies.
PDT employees have not only lightweighted components such as the Cadillac control arm (25% weight reduction), GM Corvette cradle (15% weight reduction), and engine bearing cap (12% weight reduction), but offered other lightweighting solutions that are polymer-based.
PDT technologies consider the beginning of the material stage during processing through to the end-use in the life cycle management.
We also can evaluate and model the following materials processing methods: casting, rolling, welding, extrusion, drawing, forming, metal cutting, milling, compaction, sintering and heat treating.
PDT provides clients with advanced modeling/simulation and experimental technologies in the biomedical field.
PDT employees have experience providing state-of-the-art simulation tools that accurately model different parts of the human body that can be used for Traumatic Brain Injury, carpel tunnel syndrome, exercise efficiency, helmet designs, and safety designs from impact events in general.
PDT provides clients with advanced modeling/simulation and experimental technologies related to forest and wood products.
In trying to create biodegradable structural and mechanical components, wood-based products can be designed and used at an affordable price.
PDT has experience to creating these biodegradable products for lightweighting components with manufacturable ease.
PDT provides clients with advanced modeling/simulation and experimental technologies related to different nuclear environments.
PDT can help in the design, manufacturing, and analysis of nuclear and nuclear related materials in order to assess ageing effects from different energy forms (nuclear-transport phenomena; mechanical-creep, fatigue, and fracture; chemical-corrosion and hydrogen embrittlement, and thermal)
