Dimensioning of composite and plastic components

Area of expertise

Polymer, elastomer, composite materials

Cetim's expertise in composite and plastic materials


You want to:
• identify the materials combination which best suits the part’s function
• check the mechanical, thermomechanical and shock resistance, buckling and natural frequencies according to your specifications
• optimize part’s shape: design, material reduction to reduce weight and cost.


Cetim can totally or partially support you in your dimensioning project to:
• help you master codes and regulations
• support you in designing, dimensioning or optimizing structures using finite element analysis softwares
• define characteristics and identify materials’ behaviour laws
• validate, study and comment a computation report
• check assemblies


Specialized experts at every step: standards and regulations, dimensioning and computation, design, analysis... Our specialists take your specific parameters into account and propose a general management for your project
