Elevated Temperature Design & Analysis

Elevated and Super-Elevated Temperature design and analysis of pressure vessels and process equipment – ensuring safety and structural integrity.

President, Bill O’Donnell, Sr. co-developed the ASME design criteria for elevated temperature equipment – the O’Donnell-Porowski solution for the response of structures subjected to cyclic thermal and pressure loads. This criteria is used world-wide in the design of elevated temperature components.

  • ODonnell - Porowski Creep Bounds
    O’Donnell-Porowski Bounds for Creep Ratcheting at Elevated Temperature.


    Equipment operating at elevated temperatures requires a knowledge of creep, creep ratcheting and creep fatigue. Basic elevated temperature failure modes include ductile rupture from short-term loads, creep rupture from long-term loads, creep fatigue failure and buckling due to short-term loads.

    Bill O’Donnell has written papers on these subjects – as well as performed the design, analysis & troubleshooting of equipment in elevated temperature service. Two such papers he co-authored are Vessels for Elevated Temperature Service and
    Creep Tensile Instability Solutions in Design Applications.
