We provide structural stress analyses by using finite element methods (FEM) to customers that need highly-skilled and experienced consulting engineers to help perform analysis on their designs or they need to solve structural integrity of their assets. Identifying and analysing possible failure modes and optimizing the ultimate design to perform against them is the primary focus of our structural stress analysis services.

Structural stress analysis services include

  • Design, analyse and check load carrying capacities of structural components like vessel internal components, structural connections, rectangular ducts with stiffeners, pipe racks, columns, beams, pipe supports etc.
  • Calculate minimum life span thickness based on structural engineering considerations to avoid risking the structural stability of pressure equipment like pressure vessels, heat exchangers, tanks and piping.
  • Structural analysis and design of special structures and non-pressure parts (e.g. platforms, ladders, clips and other attachments) attached to various parts of pressure vessels and heat exchangers.
  • Structural stability analysis (e.g. nonlinear buckling analysis) to make sure that the mechanical component will not buckle for the given design loading.
  • Structural design calculations for estimation of environmental loads (like ice, snow, wind, rain, seismic), equipment and operating loads.
  • Fatigue assessment of steel structures and equipment.
  • Determination of remaining life of steel structures.
  • Optimization of structures using FEM.

Area of expertise in finite element methods

  • Static and dynamic analyses of steel structures.
  • Stress analysis according to various international standards for technological structures:
    • Pressure vessels, storage tanks, containers, silos, pipeline systems, and other types of equipment and steel structures.
  • Stress analysis using finite elements method FEM:
    • Statics (linear, non-linear, stability, contact and thermal tasks),
    • Dynamic (both natural and forced vibrations),
    • Seismic (natural or man-made).
  • Buckling analysis

TWSCON provides expert services to customers across a wide range of industries. Our company offers a wide range of consulting services based on Finite Element Analysis and structural design of technological steel structures. We are also orientated towards the area of assessment of structural and operational integrity of structures as an integral part of optimization process of inspection and maintenance activities. We are especially strong in the solving the problems of thin-walled structures, mainly storage tanks. Combining in-depth industry knowledge, operational expertise and knowledge of leading technical inventions we think innovatively. We are also very active in research to provide customers the simplest and the best solution. We think simply and innovatively. ... Learn More
