CADE develops from conceptual design to 3D-2D detailed design (valid for manufacturing)  as well as structural analysis and simulation (FEA/CFD) covering most of international recognized structural codes and standards. By collaborating with recognized entities, CADE implements wind tunnel testing  or structrual strengh tests as essential input of structural engineering and design projects.

CADE provides consultancy support for large manufacturing series of structural products by covering aspects as manufacturing and assembly tooling desing, definition of inspection procedures and statistic control, quality assurance plan, etc.

Furthermore, CADE delivers consultancy and engineering services over existing structures subject to extreme load conditions or new operating requirements aimed to life extension, failure root cause analysis, design validation or reengineering.
