CASE STUDY

Metal additive manufacturing for lightweight helicopter parts

A process design and topology optimisation study was undertaken, beginning with a baseline stress analysis for a current machined-from-solid AlSi10Mg aluminium alloy handle, in order to evaluate different AM handle designs and also a hollow handle, indicating weight savings of between 20% and 45% were possible.

CASE STUDY

Seismic II takes schools to the next level

Large public works, like schools and hospitals, are increasingly benefitting from the faster delivery of modern methods of construction, such as modular building. The catch is that there are many platforms for modular structures that can prove incompatible, leading to potential waste and increased cost.

CASE STUDY

Environmentally friendly solution for wind turbine installation

With funding from the Offshore Wind Growth Partnership, the NCC worked with Cedeco to develop an early-stage concept for a composite gripper, which would hold an offshore wind turbine leg in place without so much need for environmentally invasive reinforcement.

CASE STUDY

End-to-end hydrogen – supporting critical infrastructure

Hydrogen is a powerful fuel source that has the potential to revolutionise a number of sectors, including transport. With almost zero carbon emissions and a high energy density, this abundant gas promises to be a key element of delivering net zero whilst satisfying the increasing national need for energy.

CASE STUDY

Helping construction reopen safely

Social distancing is key to reopening sections of the economy that have needed to close during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the group nature of the work, social distancing has particularly hit the UK construction sector, meaning many sites have been unable to operate normally.
