Design Analysis

ESi’s design analysis experts support the product development efforts of our clients through testing products currently in development and analyzing failures in their products, to help them improve the structures, mechanical systems, and components that make them up.

Our team has been involved in cases involving  construction equipment, diesel and gasoline piston engine components, steam and gas turbine  components, rail cars, pipelines, process piping, pressure vessels, airplane and helicopter structures and components, automotive components, ladders, aerial ladders, cranes, and building structures.

ESi’s in-house analysis capabilities include solid modeling, stress analysis, finite element analysis (solid mechanics, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics), fatigue analysis, and fracture mechanics.
