Finite element analysis
DemcoTECH has completed Finite Element Analysis (FEA) on the structures of bucket wheel stacker reclaimers, ship loaders, trippers, and loading hoppers. This auditing capability enables our design team to identify and address potential structural defects during the design phase of the project. Our clients benefit from DemcoTECH’s ability to resolve overstressed structural members on machines, improving operational life and enhancing safety. All analysis is performed to the clients’ specification and international codes of practice. Based on these FEAs, inspection schedules can be compiled to monitor areas of structural stress over the life of the machine.
