Structural and Operational Integrity Analyses
Structural integrity management is fundamental to ensure safe and the most productive operational life of assets. Structural integrity analyses covers a full range of activities of inspection and monitoring, material evaluations and remaining life assessment, stress and fatigue analyses, remediation and repairs. Effective structural integrity management minimises the risk of catastrophic failure and the likelihood of having to take components out of service, maximises operational efficiency, and promotes asset life extension.
We offer a wide range of services for a vast field of operations includes oil, gas and chemical plants, refineries, pipelines, power plants and many others. Our multidisciplinary team is committed to providing our services with the highest performance and the most additional value to customers. We combine our knowledge across different engineering areas to protect the structural integrity of our customers' assets.
The principle of our structural integrity analysis is to find answers to three mutual questions:
Main results of our structural integrity analysis are:
Structural integrity services cover the following fields:
Correct characterization of the degradation mechanism of components of tank farms are essential to prediction of their integrity and inspection needs. Due to accurate prediction of environment effect on structures we are able to set up the best inspection procedures at optimal intervals.
We use finite element analyses for assess of critical point of structural integrity of analysed structures. Finite element analyses made by a highly skilled mechanical engineer give us a precise description of analysed structures and are integral to the decision making processes in risk based analyses.
Fitness-for-service (FFS) assessment is a multi-disciplinary engineering approach that is used to evaluate structural components to determine if they are fit to continue operation for some desired future period. The typical outcome of an FFS assessment is a decision on continued service of structural component.
Corrosion of materials dramatically affect performance and safety. It is necessary to provide detailed mapping of corroded areas. Our experienced personnel are able to perform evaluation of measured data with appropriate confidence for safe operation until the next inspection.
