Our breadth of knowledge

DC White Engineering Consultants Industry Experience

DC White has vast experience of working in different industry sectors, which enables us to bring our expertise to bear across industries, such as from the nuclear industry to the petrochemical industry and vice versa.  

Quality is important to all our clients and we are accustomed to working to the highest standards.

Power - Nuclear and Renewables
DC White has been heavily involved in ensuring safe power generation whether from nuclear, conventional or renewable sources: from seismic design at Sizewell B to the inspection of broken wind turbine blades, we continue to help solve issues at the cutting edge of the industry.

Aerospace and Defence

DC White has a long association with the aerospace industry, dating back to founder, Doug White's, work on engine vibration at Rolls-Royce in the 60's and 70's,  notably on 'squeeze film bearings', one of the many devices which makes today's three shaft engines, such as the RB211 and the Trent, smooth running and so successful.
Vibration work has continued, most recently for Weston Aerospace (Esterline), supporting the development of the new Trent engine.  Our activities in the area are more wide ranging, for example: military truck chassis, tank turrets, and radar drive mechanisms.

Civil Engineering - Seismic, Vibration and Foundations

To DC White, a building is an over-sized piece of mechanical equipment, so earthquake induced vibrations are in many ways akin to the vibrations in a hand-held drill.  Unlike the drill, the behaviour of the materials is more uncertain and it is here that we have particular expertise, having practical experience of the effects that an earthquake has on both well designed and poorly constructed buildings.

Vibrations transmitted by machinery within a building is another area of our expertise, becoming more and more important with the trend towards lighter construction.  Our understanding of vibrations has lead us into the area of foundation engineering where we designed and developed a family of rapid pile-setting equipment, the drill and the drive mast.
