Designing Gas Cylinders

AltaSim Technologies guides engineers through multiphysics simulations so they can bring their products to market more rapidly, at a lower cost, and with an optimized design. To help see how working with AltaSim impacts our clients, we have put together a brief case study of how our simulation experts provided a unique solution in a recent project.


One of AltaSim’s clients designs and manufactures cylinders that contain high pressure gases. Their cylinders are manufactured to the highest safety and quality standards while maintaining portability. Our client was in the middle of a cylinder design project when a regulatory agency introduced a new design requirement. Having to meet this requirement threatened the original product development schedule. Supply chain delays also would push the development of physical prototypes back several months.


Our client leveraged AltaSim’s extensive expertise in developing simulations that enable engineers to test design concepts virtually rather than physically. Several design concepts were provided for AltaSim to simulate.  We were able to quickly simulate how the designs responded to the new regulatory requirements. All the simulations were completed in a matter of weeks rather than months.


Our client was able to select a specific design concept that they were able to physically test and validate against the regulatory requirements. They also were able to keep their product development on schedule by investing $15k and three weeks into simulating their design concepts rather than waiting for physical prototype development. Our client saved months of prototype development time by using AltaSim to assess their design concepts.

In addition to developing simulations for our clients, AltaSim also trains engineers to develop simulations. For more information on our classes visit our calendar.

We limit our classes to eight (8) students to maximize the attention each student receives. To learn more about our class for structural simulations, click here.
