- Stress and fatigue analysis of large-diameter nuclear waste recycling vessels under NQA-1 requirements
- Vessels with internal piping and structures subjected to sloshing, seismic and added-mass effects
- Transient thermal-fatigue of thick-walled tanks
- Lifting and transportation analyses
- Buckling analysis via ASME formulas, Eulerian and Nonlinear methods
- Differential thermal-stress analysis of heat exchanges having mixed materials
Within this body of work, we have applied the following codes:
- ASME BPVC Section VIII, Division 2 stress and fatigue
- ASCE 4-98 with added-mass applications for normal modes analysis
- ASCE 7-02, AISI N690 and ABS
To support our pressure vessel work, we have written custom software for stress and fatigue evaluation of thin and thick-walled pressure vessels.
In summary: Our careful and meticulous ASME BPVC pressure vessel consulting work has allowed us to classify tanks and vessels as "fit-for-service" that would typically have required extensive rework by hand-calculations. Clients come to us when they need high-quality work executed and documented to withstand the most rigorous reviews whether DOE, GE Water and Gas or SpaceX.
