We use the latest analysis tools and technology to support and enhance our real-world experience.
Modern computational techniques allow us to design and develop bespoke pressure containment systems, safety intervention tooling and valve upgrades that are optimised to reduce weight, increase performance and reduce cost.
We have a full suite of mathematical calculations / models that are used to analyse all aspects of mechanical equipment, including valve pressure boundary and pressure controlling elements. This allows us to review valves and equipment for compliance with international codes and standards and ensure that any overhaul work, modifications or upgrades are fit for purpose and compliant.
We undertake Computational Fluid Dynamics in order to simulate fluid flow through valves or around components (such as gas turbine blades) in order to evaluate the response to certain features or parameters.
CFD further enhances our capabilities, particularly within the field of Control Valves, allowing the accurate simulation of problems, such as flashing, cavitation and trim exit velocity.
Typical applications are:
We carry out linear and non-linear finite element analyses for both static and dynamic simulations.
Utilising our extensive knowledge and experience of mechanical engineering, pressure vessel design and the oil and gas industry to idealise FE models and apply the most appropriate and effective methods to our simulations.
Our capabilities include:
