Solving, correcting, and preventing structural problems. From design and thermal, stress, vibration and fatigue analysis to materials/ metallurgical troubleshooting, failure analysis, and repair – using “hands on” engineering, we offer expertise to help you solve your technical challenges.
We provide engineering services for aerospace firms, performing thermal, stress, fatigue, finite element, and failure analysis. We perform structural optimization, minimizing component weight, resulting in low materials cost and maximum performance.
O’Donnell Consulting performs failure analysis by combining materials and metallurgy with state-of-the-art finite element analysis, determining the precise root cause of structural failures - and designing solutions to prevent re-ocurrence. We have assisted clients in numerous industries including manufacturing, chemical, automotive, transportation and consumer equipment.
We perform forensic engineering services, investigating industrial accidents, fire/explosions, patent litigation, materials/ metallurgical and product liability issues.
We quantify how materials and products fail, including mechanical integrity of equipment that has deteriorated due to corrosion, fatigue, damage, exposure to fire, abuse, and improper manufacture. We have over 40 years experience in engineering design, analysis, troubleshooting and providing expert witness testimony.
We investigate chemical fires, electrical fires, structural fires, and explosions, and perform in-depth causation analysis, supporting conclusions with quantified results and illustrations.
We perform technical services to minimize risk and improve your bottom line.
We provide comprehensive safety reviews of heavy industrial and construction machinery, helping to reduce the risks due to human error associated with electrical, mechanical, hydraulic and control systems.
