For our product to be viable and successful, we had to make sure it could perform how we expected it to perform. That’s where analysis and strength testing was vitally important. Wilde Analysis provided an excellent service delivering the results in a truly professional manner and worked with us through various iterations of the product. A very knowledgeable and highly recommended company.Philadelphia Scientific UK Ltd
ANSYS AIM allowed UEL to run multiphysics analysis of heat transfer for a new engine where testing of prototypes would usually be the method used. The engine is still in early stages but dozens of analyses have been run, steering the project in its direction. What AIM offered over other platforms was a relatively cheap but powerful solver which is very intuitive. The addition of finning to the engine housing is currently set to reduce the maximum housing temperature by up to 51% and not a single prototype has been manufactured yet.
This was a unique project for the client and for us. We required Wilde’s help and are very happy with the outcome. Wilde’s engineers also provided us with knowledgeable advice and recommendations to improve our design work; there have been no issues with the fabrication and installation and we have found Wilde’s engineers very helpful throughout our design development and the client’s approval process.
Wilde’s integrated scope of material testing, material modelling and model validation provides an excellent base for our FE analysis, allowing our in-house analysis team to focus on providing high-quality analysis of our products.
Technip Umbilical Systems
Very good course. Communicates a huge complex package simply and effectively……A rounded course covering a range of topics, presented by a very knowledgeable tutor.
Having some exposure to ANSYS Mechanical in my current role the mechanical intro course has answered a lot of questions and uncertainties. It has also prompted new questions about potential for many of the encountered features and the prospect of facilitating better engineering analysis.
Parkburn Precision Handling Systems
On completion of the design, Wilde, being a preferred partner of Parkburn, was enlisted to carry out independent verification. After specifying the design requirements and objectives of the analysis, Parkburn can rely on Wilde to provide reliable results in a presentable format ready for review by design approval agencies.
IAC and Wilde Analysis have been working together for several years now, and we at IAC know that our CFD and FEA work is in safe hands. The intuitive way the work is completed means IAC engineers can be confident of high-quality results delivered by Wilde on schedule.
This has been a very productive and informative piece of work from my point of view. It has shed some very encouraging light on the expected behaviour of the larger scale devices and I am very optimistic about the future of the concept. Thank you for managing to combine competence with charm, it’s been a pleasure. I do indeed hope to work with Wilde again in the future.
Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult (Narec)
Great course, knowledgeable tutor. Perfect for me after ten years of studying FEA at university.
….thank you again for all your hard work with our project. We are very satisfied with the work produced and I am pleased that we have furthered our understanding of our product. I believe this is an important step in advancing our technical information and I look forward to working with you again in the future.
I would just like to thank everyone at Wilde for the high quality FEA work on some new products we are bringing to market. Without doubt, the analysis helped us design a product that will outperform our original design. The engineers involved were most helpful, not only in delivering the work but also explaining the results and working with us on design improvements. I will certainly be using the service on future products we bring to market.
We were very impressed with how well the process went. Compared to our previous experience of product development / FEA with a prior company, we felt that the process with Wilde was much faster, with results expertly presented and proven to be accurate.
Thanks for your support on this. It’s really beneficial to get a second pair of eyes.
The course is excellent I feel confident about going back to work and using ANSYS.
Pipeline Engineering & Supply Co.
The project fully met our defined objectives and gave us exactly what we wanted. I was particularly impressed with the Wilde engineer’s knowledge of materials – not many mechanical engineers would know so much about stress properties but he was very clued up on this. In terms of value for money, I would give Wilde ten out of ten
Halliburton (Red Spider Technology)
Well executed, gives accurate level of confidence to start running simulations unaided... efficient …required minimal interface, but provided a pragmatic approach & interpretation (of results)
It was very useful to us to get a feeling for how the seal behaves from before fixing to fixed. We would certainly include this phase for future jobs where we plan to use straight tooling for manufacture.
We’d like to thank you for your help with this project. Getting such concise and helpful information back will ultimately help in our quest to buy the ANSYS software.
Contitech Oil & Gas
Wilde provided efficient communication with a cost effective approach within the timescale required to keep the project on target.

The job was delivered on time with a very proactive approach from their engineers. Subsequent tests on the machine have proven the model to be accurate and allowed the design to develop.
Wilde Analysis Ltd are a very professional and competent organisation and employees.
Red Bull Technology
The content of the course was perfectly tailored to our applications & level of detail required. I like the teaching style of introducing the broad topics in their basics & then going through each again in the next level of detail & then again at a higher level. Each time you feel like you know about the topic & can build on it which is very confidence inspiring... great technique.
I have found this course particularly useful. The content took me from a basic level of understanding to a point at which I feel comfortable using the software effectively. The teaching and exercises were very effective and interesting.
AMEC (Clean Energy – Europe)
Excellent course pitched at the level we required……..The course was aimed at mechanical engineers who have access to software or results. It was a great insight into dangers of not understanding FEA and its results.
Esterline (Darchem Engineering)
Everything about Wilde exuded first class quality from the moment [they] came to visit us to listen to our requirements. Then using Wilde’s extensive experience to provide Darchem with advice on the most cost and time effective options available for the analysis, whilst retaining accurate and robust results. The end report, results and the time scale in which this was achieved, further confirmed Wilde’s quality of service.
One on one focus day was an excellent introduction. The level of focused preparation is much appreciated. Your tutors managed to pack a remarkable amount in two days whilst answering all my questions – very useful course.
Wilde’s team deliver training competently & always have time & patience when required. Highly recommended…..Good facilities, knowledgeable staff

Through ANSYS Workbench we have a tool which allows us to increase the performance of our products. Drastic reductions in weights and inertia of the couplings have been achieved without compromising the strength of the unit. Lateral vibration of coupling is now being estimated to a level of confidence previously unattainable without days of computation and cost.
Chesterfield Special Cylinders
... a key project that we had originally planned to do in-house, but our internal resources were pushed to the limit... passed it on to Wilde to complete at very short notice. They responded immediately & completed everything very quickly... They pulled it out of the bag very impressively & were the perfect solution to our difficulty. Added to that, Wilde provided excellent value for money compared to other companies that we have considered in the past.
Wilde’s ANSYS consultancy services had been recommended to us by another company. This was therefore the first time that we had used them and we were very satisfied with their work for us. They enabled us to meet our main objective, which was to provide independent clarification on our own calculations. Everything was done to the agreed timescale, and we were very happy with the level of communication.
Compressor Products International
We gained a lot from our visit and are in the process of putting it into action here at CPI. We hope and feel sure there will be future scope to work with you again on other projects that the company will be involved with and will look to contact Wilde as and when those projects arrive.
BMP Europe Ltd
ANSYS enables us to calculate stresses and FEA limits to optimise our design solutions and provide confidence in our products. By using this software, we have not only saved costs and time within our projects but also improved the reliability of our products.
It was a case of us needing to get the job done quickly. Like many other companies, we don’t always have the skills and labour resources available to us in house, as our work flow varies.... If you have a good supplier, they become an extension of your business, in whom you can have confidence and rely upon when needed. This is where Wilde proves so useful to us; their engineers are really helpful, highly knowledgeable and very competent.
As a new user of ANSYS, I found the course and information very useful and has given me a great starting position to conduct basic analysis work.
Wilde quickly understood the scope of the analysis & defined precisely the engineering information that would be required....... The product design was modified on the basis of the analysis. Samples subsequently passed rigorous environmental testing including vibration & drop testing before the design was released for high volume production.…pleased with the time Wilde take to understand our requirements …used them on a number of projects.
Working with Wilde Analysis is a pleasure. They have the requisite skill, expertise and experience to contribute to the development of the solution. They are able to contribute at the research and development level and at the engineering design level, which is an important capability. As a business we have found them to be professional in their presentation and approach at all times.
Willerby Holiday Homes
... Willerby has worked closely with Wilde Analysis on new product development. The work has included in depth FEA and part optimisation studies relating to new product developments.... The work has resulted in excellent opportunities to reduce component part count and material content. Due to the success of this partnership, it is highly likely that further studies will be conducted between the two organisations going forward.

We always appreciate Wilde’s approach as working with them is very beneficial for us, both in terms of project costs & knowledge transfer. They are very open about the results, barriers & difficulties involved, & do their utmost to make sure the models are validated, which not many other companies would do. Wilde go to great lengths to produce the accurate results we need, that’s why we have developed a successful working relationship.
... Our improved in-house capability has speeded up our development schedules & helps us to progress our designs & testing much faster, with lead time reductions of around 80%...We see Wilde as a key partner in the development of our skills & software capability.
The particular assembly that was evaluated is fitted into what we would consider to be a severe application. The study based on the FE analysis results demonstrated that there were no areas that are significantly highly stressed which in turn gives confidence with similar designs fitted to less demanding applications. The study that Wilde performed for us gives us confidence to look for similar type of assistance in the future.
Global Gas Company
I was very satisfied with the end result and manner of analysis Wilde carried out for us, their input was invaluable to the project design review, they played a major part in obtaining our goal.
