Quest Integrity has extensive experience in structural integrity and the creation of highly sophisticated models of structures and materials. Our unparalleled expertise in computational mechanics enables us to proficiently apply leading edge computer simulation technology to practical problems.
Key elements of our computational mechanics solution include:
Stresses and temperatures within a structural component can be determined with finite element analysis. Our experience includes finite element analysis on a wide range of structural components in a variety of industries.
Our 3D laser scanning service produces 3D modelling of complex or damaged asset components. 3D models can be imported into either our Signal™ FFS software for efficient and rapid Level 2 corrosion assessments, or into our finite element analysis software for detailed analysis. This service enables fast and accurate reconstruction of components and associated damage mechanisms, which is particularly helpful where detailed drawings are not available. Laser scanning is a safe and non-destructive method which is easily deployed in the power, refining and oil and gas industries.
Fracture mechanics simulation is comprised of advanced, robust
modeling of complex cracking problems. This approach removes many of the
simplistic assumptions that are typical of standard fracture mechanics
Computational fluid dynamics deals with the numerical simulation of fluid flow and heat transfer. Quest Integrity has applied this technology to model turbine blades, heat exchangers, boilers and other types of equipment which exhibit complex flow patterns.
Our vibration analysis service enables early detection of mechanical fatigue, which left unaddressed, can cause operational inefficiencies and at worst, catastrophic failures. Vibration analysis can be used in the oil and gas, refining and chemical, syngas and power industries to accurately monitor asset health and allow repairs or replacements to be made during planned shutdowns or outages. Vibration analysis services include:
