Structural Analysis of Compressor Skid Nozzles and Pad
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Projects
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Projects – design and stress, vibration and fatigue analysis of equipment to AWS, API, ASME + Codes.
ASME Section VIII Division 1 (FEA) stress and buckling analysis on a decanter used to transfer microscopic materials.
Evaluation of Loads on High Temperature Condensate Tank Nozzles
FEA design and (thermal & buckling) analysis performed to ASME Code on a chemical tubular reactor
FEA Results Showing Deflections on Lift Hook We performed a forensic failure analysis on a damaged mining lift hook. As a worker was lifting and moving a cylindrical metal basket loaded with parts, the lift hook bracket assembly that secured the basket to the crane hook had failed. Consequently, the (approximately 1,600 pound) basket loaded …
A client had determined that in very dusty environments where their base-ported pressure filter was used, particles can get in between the threads of the tube and cap.
Coke Oven Battery Engineering Evaluation – design / construction forensic investigations in $560 M ICC Arbitration.
Thermal, Structural and Fatigue Analysis – and Subsequent Redesign of Heat Exchanger A number of cracks were found around the bolt holes of the inlet and outlet tubesheets of a heat exchanger in service at NASA/ Lewis. We performed failure analysis and subsequent redesign to ensure conformance to code. Cracks had initiated at the …
FEA design and (thermal, stress, vibration and fatigue) analysis – vessels & other components for nuclear radioactive waste cleanup.
Thermal, fatigue, and creep Analysis using ASME Code We performed ASME Section VIII design & analysis – (using thermal, stress and fatigue) finite element analysis on elevated temperature/ pressure vessels processing nuclear waste. The vessels were to treat radioactive waste to produce a stable, immobilized solid product waste as part of the Idaho Cleanup Project. …
Stress and Fatigue analysis of high cycle vessels used to produce virtually pure hydrogen.
Heat exchangers were to be supported on rigid platforms that are attached to the process deck of the ship and therefore subjected to ship motion acceleration loads.
Engineering analysis of replacement reactor coolant pump seals. In addition, a thermal hydraulic analysis was performed.
We performed structural and fatigue / fracture analysis on the main and upstream shafts in a hydroelectric plant. Inspection of the main shaft had detected linear indications at the outer surface of the shaft. The circumferential cracks initiated at pits propagated into the wall of the hollow shaft. The UT examination was performed with transducers …
O’Donnell Consulting performed (FEA) design and analysis (to ASME Code) of two large scale containment pressure vessels and equipment subjected to high energy impact with a dual phase fluid at supersonic speed. Design conditions included impact, thermal shock, and fatigue loading. Using finite element analysis, vessels, supports, nozzles, and flanged connections were designed and analyzed. …
