Fracture Mechanics and Finite Element Analysis: Catastrophic to Damage Tolerance (NASGRO)

Predictive Engineering FEA Fracture and Fatigue Engineering  Consultants - - Experimental Fracture Mechanics

Analysis

FEA

Welcome to our overview of Predictive Engineering’s FEA consulting services in Fracture Mechanics and Damage Tolerance.  We are realists in the world of virtual simulation.  That is, we are mechanically focused and come from experimental and laboratory backgrounds and we use this reality to guide us in the virtual world where it can be quite difficult to determine whether one has a cartoon or something real.

Our fracture mechanics experience has been gained in the laboratory, academically and in-the-field.  We have seen first-hand how structures can catastrophically fail and how careful analysis work can lead to long-term, safe operation.

This brief note takes the reader from our origins at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL), to our experience in mining and mineral commutation, to XFEM of aluminum ship structures, ASME Division 2, Section 3, Alternative Rules for High Pressure Vessels to finally our experience with NASGRO in the analysis of Composite Overlay Pressure Vessels (COPV).

We hope you enjoy this tour of our FEA consultants experience in Fracture and Damage Mechanics.
