Elaborate piping systems, common in thermal power plants, create complex loading conditions that include thermal gradients, pressure transients, water hammer, and seismic forces. Stress analysis describes the range of techniques used by engineers to calculate and model stress and strain in order to determine the reaction of a structure or component to external loading.

Stress analysis is now often undertaken with sophisticated computer-aided simulation tools, normally based on the finite element method, that allow stress concentrations to be quickly identified. This work is often supported by classical mathematical techniques and modeling and it is an essential component of most engineering design work.

We go beyond computer modeling to offer a personal, customized, service that provides the best engineering solution for the application. Our modeling is made efficient by an experienced team that includes industry-recognized experts who are developing the latest nuclear and industrial design standards and who have years of operational experience.
