Cambridge Engineering Analysis & Design (CEAD)
CEAD is an engineering, thermo-fluids and computational fluid Dynamics (CFD) consultancy based in Cambridge, UK. We develop solutions for a wide range of clients from novel blue sky ideas, early feasibility and prototype design development through to state-of-the-art mature product development and optimisation.
CEAD has over 30 years experience of engineering analysis and design in many applications including electronics cooling, systems thermal architecture development, systems and component thermal management in many applications including; avionics, medical devices, printing technology, telecommunications datacentres, blade packaging and rack systems as well as IT servers and equipment.
In the last 7 years CEAD has developed novel and exiciting Greentech & Sustainability Solutions in Carbon (CO2) Capture and Heat Energy Recovery including Polycapture technology; https://www.polycapture.co.uk
The company provides technical consultancy support services in fluid flow, thermo-fluids, structural design and dynamics analysis. CEAD has vast successful experience in many applications including: medical devices, electronics cooling, printing technologies and telecommunications.
As well as offering consultancy, over the past four years we have developed a carbon capture technology that we are advancing towards a product offering.
