FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS (FEA)

Pressure Vessels

We use a robust methodology for pressure vessel calculation covering a range of different failure modes from in-service fatigue failure under cyclic loading to plastic collapse.

Pressure Vessels

Pressure vessel designs are normally validated and guided by requirements contained in various industry specific codes and standards. SDEA has been supporting design decisions using design by analysis methods for a wide range of projects. This method is slowly becoming preferred against the more traditional design by rules approach.

Fatigue Life Prediction

Stress intensity factors and maximum allowable flaw size for a set of given operational conditions is accurately predicted by SDEA using FEA enriched methods.

Fatigue Life Prediction

Many structures or assemblies are exposed to cyclic loading along their service life. To foresee and anticipate a potential crack growth promoted by alternating loading schemes (sometimes difficult to characterise) is one of our most valuable engineering knowledge.

ELECTROMAGNETICS & INDUCTION HEATING

The team in SDEA_Engineering Solutions has significant experience in the multi-physics based simulation of induction heating processes.

Electromagnetics & Induction heating

Maxwell equations not only govern the electric and magnetic field and their interactions, they are also the base of a wide range of applications going from microwaves to induction heating. FEA can be used to accurately design electromagnetically driven products very efficiently avoiding the use of expensive prototypes.

Thermal Calculations

SDEA’s engineering team has broad experience optimizing heating systems and even doing the assessment of different heating technologies.

Thermal Calculations

Many designers have to deal with an efficient energy management that usually involves thermal calculations. This can go from more or less simplistic 1D models to ensure temperatures are controlled, to highly complex thermal structural coupling where temperature gradients are converted into stresses, in order to evaluate structural solvency.

Design assessements & Code checking

SDEA_Engineering Solutions offers services regarding calculation of engineered structures using Finite element analysis.

Design assessements & Code checking

Industry standards are paramount to ensure safety and reliability on most of the industrial designs. Every design engineer should understand and follow the correspondent related standard. ASME, DNV, EN, API are familiar to our daily work here in SDEA.

VIBRATIONS

Engineering applications are frequently exposed to vibration sources that can potentially lead to critical failures. Characterisation of the consequences of vibration should be taken into account during the design process. Fluid induced, mechanically or even magnetically induced vibration sources can cause long term fatigue failure or aggressive resonances that could collapse the system in a short term horizon.

THREADED UNIONS

Bolted unions are well documented and restricted to industry standards, but our engineering team has faced special applications where that is not enough. Make up load loss by thermal cycling, fatigue failures or unconventional loading outside the supplier’s guaranties are common scenarios where we can provide fast and accurate answers.

STRUCTURES

SDEA is currently supporting design processes involving civil engineering. This is a very demanding industry in terms of safety and reliability where the use of advanced engineering techniques like FEA combined with mandatory standards potentially lead to optimal, safe and efficient designs.
