AeroDelft are continuing their partnership with Femto Engineering as of November 2022. Femto Engineering is an engineering consulting firm with extensive experience in FEM analysis.

Our partnership with Femto began when we needed to design our own motor mount for the Project Phoenix Full Scale Aircraft as we are using an electric motor instead of a combustion engine. The motor mount needs to withstand all the forces exerted on it during flight, while keeping the material stresses and deflections below a safe threshold. To research this, Finite Element Method (FEM) analyses were performed with the help of Femto Engineering.

They guided us through the process of using the Simcenter 3D FEM software, evaluated our design, and verified that our FEM analysis was performed correctly. We are excited to announce we are continuing to partner with Femto Engineering to further our use of sophisticated engineering solutions to develop our aircraft.
