We perform design & (thermal/transient, stress, vibration & fatigue) analysis using finite element analysis (FEA) to Codes including ASME, AWS and API – to ensure structural integrity, performance and reliability. Using ANSYS and other simulation software, we provide CFD, and structural analysis on equipment including pressure vessels (including nozzles and supports), heat exchangers, bellows, cyclones, and compressors.

For a more comprehensive list of components we have worked on, see Industries Served. We perform design and analysis to relevant Codes including API, AISC, ANSI, AWS and ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel. This includes:
ASME B&PV Section III Class 1, 2 and 3 (Nuclear Power Plant Components)
ASME B&PV Section VIII Div. 1, 2 and 3 (Pressure Vessels and Components)
ASME B&PV Section IX (Welding and Brazing Qualifications)
ASME B&PV Section XI (Rules for Inspection of Nuclear Power Plants)
ASME B15, B16 +
ASME B31.1 Power Piping
ASME B31.3 Process Piping
ASME Below the Hook BTH-1 & B30.20
A few our software tools include Solidworks, PTC Creo, Inventor and AutoCAD and ANSYS. Finite element analysis requires a working knowledge of stress analysis and materials principles to get the answer right – the first time. Our engineers are multi-disciplined in areas of materials, design, metallurgy and manufacturing – each with more than 25 years of experience. Contact us for an initial free consultation.

Learn from the experience of others. Especially when one such “other” is Dr. William O’Donnell, PhD, PE, Founder and President of O’Donnell Consulting Engineers, Inc., and ASME “Engineer of the Year” – his 50 years of experience in analysis of components including fatigue and fracture safety evaluations and failure analyses are now comprised in this volume.
If you are interested learning more in Engineering Design, Manufacturing and Construction, as well as Failure Analysis, then this book is a must have!
