Consultancy & Analysis
We have the capabilities to advice you on a large range of topics: component design, material selection, test specifications, certification requirements and processes, maintenance strategies, inspection methods, etc.
Fatec Engineering can perform analyses in the field of fatigue life, crack growth life & residual strength, determination of load spectra, etc.
Fatec Engineering works with the following software: Fatiga, NASGRO, AFGROW, SuperSmith Weibull.
Additionally, Fatec Engineering uses standard analysis codes, like Eurocode, DNV, IIW, FKM.
Loss of structural integrity may lead to damages in or even failure of components. The actual cause is not always very obvious. Fatec Engineering can assist you with your failure analysis. We apply tools like fractography, stress & strength analysis, Weibull reliability engineering, etc.
Once you have found damages, you would like to know what you can expect of the life of similar components. Further it is essential to know if the damage is of incidental or systematic nature. Also in those cases Fatec Engineering can offer you support.
After the damage has been assessed and analysed it is time for solutions. Think about improved design, modification of components in service, optimised maintenance strategies and inspection intervals, better inspection methods, etc.
An example: a client from the automotive industry produces welded components that have to pass certification tests on fatigue. By clever correlating the fatigue test results to FE calculation results, an easy to apply fatigue prediction tool could be developed.
Research & Development
Besides working on its own development projects, Fatec Engineering also offers the possibility of contract R&D.
