Finite Elements analysis
The finite element method (FEM) is a numerical technique used to perform finite element analysis (FEA) of any given physical phenomenon.
It is necessary to use mathematics to comprehensively understand and quantify any physical phenomena, such as structural or fluid behavior, thermal transport, wave propagation, and the growth of biological cells. Most of these processes are described using partial differential equations (PDEs). However, for a computer to solve these PDEs, numerical techniques have been developed over the last few decades and one of the most prominent today is the finite element method.

Computational Fluid Dynamics
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is one of the branches of fluid mechanics that uses numerical methods and algorithms to solve and analyze fluid flow problems.
Computers are used to perform millions of calculations required to simulate the interaction of liquids and gases with complex engineering projected surfaces. Even with simplified equations and high-performance supercomputers, only approximate results can be achieved in many cases.
Continuous research, however, allows the incorporation of software that increases the calculation speed as well as decreases the margin of error, while allowing the analysis of increasingly complex situations such as transonic fluids and turbulent flows. The verification of the data obtained by CFD is usually carried out in wind tunnels or other physical scale models.

Conjugated Heat Transfer
The Conjugate Heat Transfer (CHT) analysis type allows for the simulation of heat transfer between solid and fluid domains by exchanging thermal energy at the interfaces between them. Typical applications of this analysis type exist as, but are not limited to, the simulation of heat exchangers, cooling of electronic equipment, and general-purpose cooling and heating systems.
The CHT approach has an advantage over FE thermal analyses in that wall heat transfer coefficients and their local variations on surfaces are directly calculated within the model rather than based on simplified empirical calculations. The CHT approach therefore has benefits for those applications where heat transfer is either non-uniform or difficult to calculate empirically.
Study of deformations and the prestressing process in pressure equipment flanges
The flanged joints of pressure equipment can show deformations due to the bolt tightening process, or being generated later during service. The appearance of this type of problem may mean that the equipment is not suitable to continue with the operation, with the consequent economic impact that would entail a stop, repair or replacement of the affected components. Through FEA simulation […]
Design and FEM analysis of equipment and conductors made of fiber reinforced plastic (FRP)
There are many sectors (chemical and process industry, naval, aeronautical or food sector) and industrial applications in which it is necessary to design and validate equipment made with special materials (FRP- Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic), due to to the special corrosion resistance requirements for which they have to provide service. This is the case of pressure […]
Fitness for service procedures for cracks like flaws
During the life cycle of many pressure vessels arise the necessity to maintain them in service after detecting crack-like flaws or delamination. For that, there are some methodologies that allow establishing a quantitative judgment about if it is possible to safely operate this equipment and also determine its remaining life until it must be repaired […]
