Specialist engineering and consultancy services for the Marine Sector

Expert consulting from our Marine engineers


 

Stirling Dynamics provides high-end engineering and consultancy services which support complex design and development programmes in the marine industries – including those with demanding safety-critical requirements. We have built an enviable reputation in submarine autopilots within platform management systems (PMS) and offer an advanced modelling and simulation capability. Once deployed, our engineers can provide a full range of support services, including submarine control solutions, marine propulsion, computational fluid dynamics and dynamic systems modelling.

Core Capabilities


Simulation and
Control

The Simulation and Control capability group operates across all disciplines in the marine sector. We model all aspects of marine systems and their environments, building integrated models that can be used to simulate all aspects of a system’s performance and which range from offline tools for performance and safety analysis to real-time simulations for training and Hardware-in-the-Loop environments. Our understanding of surface and sub-surface vessel dynamics allows us to develop and implement control laws for a wide variety of marine system platforms.

Systems and
Safety

The Systems and Safety capability group works closely with our customers to deliver their complex systems from requirements definition all the way through to verification and validation, and our engineers have significant experience in the definition, integration, and safety assessment of systems. Our systems safety capability covers the full development process including safety-critical software and whole boat safety assessments.

Fluid
Dynamics

The Structural and Fluid Dynamics capability group has the ability to model and analyse a range of structures and fluid-structure interactions. In the marine sector, bringing together structural modelling with hydrodynamic analysis (both CFD and empirical methods) allows us to build integrated models to analyse complex dynamic behaviours, above and below the surface. The group has extensive experience in modelling the fluid effects on a wide range of platforms, from surface ships to submarines, including hydrodynamic, hydrostatic, sea state and other environmental aspects.

Software
Development

The Software Engineering capability group develop real-time safety critical software for control and instrumentation systems used in the marine industries. The team consists of software engineers with significant experience working in multidisciplinary product development teams. Our software engineering capability works very closely with our other engineering and project management capabilities to ensure we achieve optimum integrated solutions for our customers.

Electromechanical
Design

Within Electromechanical Design, Stirling Dynamics brings together a team with experience in mechanical, electrical, and electronic engineering with the knowledge of CAD and stress analysis. We have a range of design skills to support both our own products and those of our customers, including the ability to reverse-engineer existing designs. Our engineers also develop new designs to support many of our clients who then take these designs forward to manufacture.
