Structural analysis of a vessel subjected to a vacuum loading at elevated temperature – to determine instantaneous (linear and non-linear) buckling and long term creep buckling responses.
Refineries and petrochemical plants contain some of the harshest environments – subjected to extreme pressures and temperatures, as well as highly corrosive environments. In order to design, build and operate such equipment, engineering expertise in metallurgy, welding and elevated temperature applications is required. In addition, this equipment is asked to perform safely and efficiently to – and often beyond its design life – in order to minimize plant life cycle costs.
See also elevated temperature design & analysis, materials/metallurgy and weld consulting – which includes fatigue and stress corrosion evaluations, as well as assisting in compliance to AWS/ API/ ASME and other Codes.
We also provide API579/ASME FFS-1 Fitness for Service evaluations to extend the life of equipment.

Fatigue is one of the key contributing factors to the degradation of aging components. We investigate the factors that contribute to structural failure – and provide practical solutions to keep your plant fully operational. Give us a call to talk about your needs.
