Atkins has been delivering high quality aerospace engineering solutions for over 15 years. We offer broad capability, extensive experience and technical excellence to clients that shape the aerospace industry.
Atkins’ design and analysis in support of wing tip extensions for the A320 will help increase payload, reduce noise and bring down fuel consumption by 3.5% (equivalent to a reduction of approximately 700 tonnes of CO2 per aircraft, per year).
Atkins’ research into the behaviour of composite structures under aerodynamic and inertial forces will support the design of lightweight and energy efficient structures, including aircraft wings, wind and gas turbine blades, bridges and gantries, and lightweight oil rig structures.
Atkins’ involvement in the A400M wing checkstress covers analysis of covers, ribs, leading edge details, engine pylon attachment brackets and metallics.
