Engineering Design & Analysis

Engineering Design & Analysis 

Engineering design and analysis (stress, thermal & fatigue) to codes including AWS, API and ASME (B&PV, Piping and BTH) – ensuring structural integrity of equipment.

Whether you require Closed-Form Design-By-Rule methods (ASME Section VIII Division 1) or Finite Element Analysis with Design-By-Analysis (ASME Section VIII Division 2) – we have extensive experience in design, analysis and optimization, maximizing equipment reliability and controlling costs for owner-users.

Analysis of Nuclear Vessel Head

O’Donnell Consulting Engineers performed the design and analysis of elevated temperature / pressure vessels. One particular vessel had a specification to a no-leak condition. The challenge was to attach the hemispherical head to the shell without causing distortions, due to temperature differences. We thus designed a series of clamps to seal the two pieces together.
