Our multidisciplinary expertise allows us to conduct high-end analysis that takes into consideration complex loading, varied and often conflicting operating environments, and myriad environmental factors. Our multidisciplinary approach to analysis deconstructs the entire system.

Starboard understands complex systems and generates meaningful and repeatable conclusions. We offer a menu of technical, physical, and mathematical analyses depending on the project and our clients’ needs.

Analysis Capabilities:

  • Mathematical modeling
  • Numerical simulation methods
  • Finite element analysis (FEA)
  • Multiphysics simulations
  • Validation and calibration
  • Data analysis
  • Root cause analysis (RCA)
  • Product competitive analysis
