OptiVessel Software

  Pressure Vessels and Heat Exchangers are costly and hazardous units. When failure occurs, loss of life and expensive downtime often result. The design and checking of these vessels is therefore a responsible and time-consuming task. Now, the latest techniques of software engineering have been harnessed to make OptiVessel the most user-friendly and safe package

Rotor Dynamics

Rodyna is a software code based on Finite element method (FEM), developed by Engineering Systems. It enables the modeling and simulation of the structural dynamics characteristics of rotating machinery. Rodyna is a general-purpose tool for linear lateral rotor vibration analyses that is suitable for any single drive-line rotor-bearing system, including large steam turbo-generators. As such,

Fracture Mechanics

Fracture mechanics is the field of mechanics concerned with the study of the propagation of cracks in materials. It uses methods of analytical solid mechanics to calculate the driving force on a crack and those of experimental solid mechanics to characterize the material’s resistance to fracture. Engineering Systems is able to provide services including: – Evaluation of stress intensity factors –
