Stress Analysis

Stress analysis is arguably the most fundamental application in engineering, spanning many eras, industries and ranges of complexity. It is a mature science with many practitioners and many available tools.

At DC White, we have decades of experience in solving stress-related issues for clients across many industries including Chemical, Nuclear and Process Plant, Aeronautical, Marine and Renewable Energy.

Thermal Analysis

Material properties are defined by temperature, affecting their stiffness, toughness, work-hardening and ductility. A changing temperature causes most materials to expand or contract, and when constrained they can experience major thermal stress.

High temperatures combined with stress can cause creep, weakened piping or causing contact and damage of moving parts.

Seismic Analysis

Relatively little of human civilization is designed to be earthquake resistant. Even in the developed world, earthquake resistant buildings are often seen as having intangible risks, expensive preventative measures, and as being unnecessary away from seismic hot-spots.

However, a seismic analysis assessment is often highly rational no matter the location, and we can often demonstrate seismic resistance with minimal or no redesign.

Vibration Analysis

Any system which receives an oscillatory force will vibrate. That force might be a motor; it might be an earthquake or a violin bow. When excited, even gently, at certain natural frequencies, a system can vibrate vigorously and can cause mechanical failure.

These frequencies can be very sensitive to geometry, are difficult to intuitively predict, and aren’t necessarily visible – hence why using FEA is key.

Impact Analysis

We have an explicit FEA impact capability with material plasticity and secondary contact logic. We also use non-linear implicit FEA, energy based hand-calculations and, as always, are willing to extend our software capabilities to suit our clients’ needs.

Fatigue Analysis

The DC White team is highly skilled in the analysis and assessment of the fatigue life of materials. The study of material fatigue is an engineering discipline in itself, and it goes hand in hand with creep analysis.

Material failure and fracture analysis are a key part in understanding the difference between potential catastrophic failure and long-serving design.

Seismic assessment in research facility

We were asked by our client to perform a seismic assessment of a door for a biological laboratory in New Zealand. The primary purpose of the door was to act as an airtight seal between the 'clean-room' environment and the rest of the research facility. Because of the likelihood of earthquakes in such a seismically active part of the world, it was imperative to ensure the operational [...]
