Just in the Nich...olson of time!

We must ask if we are becoming an engineering com-pun-ay at this point based on our recent press releases! Having recently submitted his PhD at the University of Nottingham in Mechanical Engineering, Jonathon Nicholson was quickly snapped up and is looking to broaden his knowledge after researching multiphase flows focusing on thin fluid films in aircraft engines. With his Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering, Jonathon continues adding to the considerable technical expertise at Norton Straw with his notable activity in fluid mechanics,...

We had the Will power for a year's placement

Last week we said farewell to Will Wilson who spent a year with us as part of his Mechanical Engineering degree at Loughborough University.  Please accept our apologies for another awful pun in the title of this article. Over his year at Norton Straw Will got to use his skills in fluid mechanics, thermal engineering and structural assessments across a wide range of interesting projects.   These included determining the likely cause of failure in a subsea pipeline, evaluating the effectiveness...

We are looking for more team members

Accelerating the equipment design process

We recently provided a webinar with Siemens PLM Software on how the team at Norton Straw is helping our clients to develop and design better performing equipment, faster. The webinar gives some great examples of how we combine our engineering simulation capability with workflow automation and design-space exploration to provide our clients with greater insight and more design options for complex engineering systems, where there are many design variables and competing requirements. The webinar is free to view...

Welcome to Rikesh; meet the man behind the Mistry

We are delighted to welcome Rikesh Mistry as Graduate Engineer to the Norton Straw team.  Rather than us write something, we decided to let Rikesh tell us more about himself.  The only request we made was for him to find a terrible pun, we think he absolutely nailed it!  Rikesh is too modest to write that he recently received a First Class Masters (MEng) degree in Aeronautics and Astronautics with Aerodynamics; well done Rikesh, welcome to the team, we are sure you will have a great career with us and now over...
