Mechanical Engineering Projects

Engineering design, analysis and troubleshooting services on components using (thermal, stress, vibration and fatigue) finite element analysis to API, AWS, ASME and other codes. We provide engineering support in the entire life-cycle of equipment and facilities – from assisting in product development, to resolving operational issues and providing support on equipment nearing the end of design life.

Failure Analysis of Cracked Tube-to-Tubesheet Welds on Chemical Reactor

Cracks had developed on tube-to-tubesheet welds on a chemical reactor. We were asked to perform a thermal transient and stress analysis of the welds. This included the startup, controlled heatup and cool-down processes on the reactor with respect to the potential for creating leaks through the tube to tubesheet welds.
