  • Mechanisms
  • Performance
  • Physical Data, Chemical Engineering
  • Structures


Achieve Greater Design Accuracy

ensure your design calculations are accurate with comprehensive, in-depth information for more than 1200 aerospace design and performance topics. IHS ESDU is the ideal complement to other design tools such as finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics programs as well as in-house practices, codes and industry standards

Optimize Designs

Provides an in-depth discussion of the relevant design parameters and the tools to research alternative configurations to optimize the design

Improve Collaboration

Methods and data enable cooperation on joint development projects without compromising proprietary methods and resources

Reduce Rework or Redesign

Because IHS ESDU methods are validated, calculations will accurately predict performance with less rework or reliance on costly prototypes

Meet Project Budgets and Schedules

Helps engineers effectively solve complex problems to shorten the initial design and development phases and reduce research costs
