Long term Damage Prevention
CANEIL personnel have performed a wide range of Fatigue Analysis projects. Protection against failure from cyclic loading, in other words a Fatigue Analysis, is required when a pressure vessel is operating in cyclic service. CANEIL uses SOLIDWORKS Premium software to create comprehensive studies using the applicable loading conditions to analyze vessel components for fatigue.
General Steps we Follow
Gather all necessary information, including but not limited to:
Perform Fatigue Screening Analysis using ASME Sec VIII Div.2 Part 5.
If it was determined through the analysis of the fatigue screening criterion a full fatigue analysis is required, then a model of the vessel is created and an FEA analysis is performed to evaluate the stress at critical vessel locations
To extract the stress values from the SOLIDWORKS model to be used in the fatigue analysis, the stress is linearized at areas of interest to gather the stress values required as per ASME Sec VIII Div. 2 Part 5. The fatigue analysis criterion are then evaluated to determine if the vessel components being analyzed are safe for continued operation.
