HTB-ES consider simulation and analysis to be as integral to their engineering as product design and development. As a result we provide services that deliver the value to our customers that we would expect to deliver within our own engineering business.
HTB-ES have been delivering simulation and analysis services that solve their customer’s critical engineering problems and deliver competitive advantage for many years. As a leading reseller of world class software we use daily, HTB-ES enjoy the unique benefit of the close links that we have with the product developers that are reflected in the high quality of the results we produce for our customers.
We perform engineering design and analysis – including thermal, stress, vibration and fatigue analysis to design codes including AWS, API and ASME Code – to ensure structural integrity.
HTB-ES Consulting Engineers performed the design and analysis of elevated temperature / pressure vessels. One particular vessel had to operate under a no-leak condition. The challenge was to attach the hemispherical head to the shell without causing distortions, because of temperature differences. We thus designed a series of clamps to seal the two pieces together.
Our expertise includes equipment operating in vibration and elevated temperature environments. We have taken on challenges in a spectrum of industries including energy, aerospace, mining, transportation, materials handling, and manufacturing.
The finite element analysis (FEA) is a numerical technique for finding approximate solutions of partial differential equations (PDE) as well as integral equations. FEA client requirements lend themselves for precise definition and ease of sub-contracting. A company planning to obtain Computer Aided Engineering for software or hardware development, may find the cost prohibitive. Therefore the companies in a competitive market traditionally outsource FEA projects.
At HTB-ES , through its experienced team using major FEA Software, provides high end FEA Solutions related to:
We provide design and thermal, stress, fatigue, finite element, and failure analysis of structures in aerospace applications. This work includes elevated temperature design and analysis to determine structural integrity, limiting operating conditions, and fatigue design life. We also perform structural dynamic analyses to predict loads and responses to environments including transient, random, and acoustic excitation.
We perform structural optimization, minimizing component weight, resulting in low materials cost and maximum performance.
We perform thermal, stress, vibration and fatigue finite element analysis (FEA) to accurately model products and processes to ensure structural integrity, performance and reliability. The bottom-line benefits to FEA analysis are: quantifying design cycles, keeping production costs low through design optimization, and uncovering potential sources of field failures.
We perform design and analysis to codes including API, AISC, AWS and ASME Boiler & Pressure Vessel Code – including Section VIII, Div. 1 and 2. We use various software tools as CATIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA, MSC APEX, MSC ADAMS, Solidworks, PTC Creo, Inventor and AutoCAD and ANSYS Finite element analysis requires a working knowledge of stress analysis and materials/ mHTB-ESllurgical principles to get the answer right - the first time. We have a team of multi-disciplined engineers, each with more than 25 years of experience. Contact us for an initial free consultation.
HTB-ES is a leading full service CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) supplier to the global automotive industry which offers extraordinary capabilities in CAE to support product development. The team is skilled at using event-based simulations of dynamic non-linear systems to analyze a variety of products.
HTB-ES offers extensive experience in the analysis of durability, NVH (Noise Vibration & Harshness), vehicle dynamics, crash/safety, mHTB-ESl stamping, CAE process development, & manufacturing process improvement for a variety of industries.
Failure analysis is a critical aspect of product development and component/system improvement. HTB-ES Consulting performs failure analysis by combining materials and metallurgy with finite element analysis, to determine the precise root cause and developing solutions to ensure structural integrity.
Production line or other heavy machinery failures can be very costly or even catastrophic for a business – we save you time and money by resolving corrosion, vibration, fatigue, or other structural issues.
We have provided solutions on equipment in numerous applications including energy, oil/gas, mining, transportation, aerospace and manufacturing.
We determine how materials and products fail, including mechanical integrity of equipment that has deteriorated due to corrosion, fatigue, damage, abuse, and improper manufacture.
Components not meeting their intended design life, or accidents and failures often result from factors including:
In elevated temperature applications, complicated failure modes may occur, such as creep ratcheting, rupture, and creep fatigue. We have the expertise, technology, and experience to identify and quantify these failure modes - helping you understand the root cause and developing solutions to prevent costly recurrences, thus lowering operating costs and improving safety.
We perform vibration analysis to ensure structural integrity – which may involve determining the design life of structures, or determining how a component may have failed. Most physical systems vibrate – inherent vibration modes in structures can shorten equipment life, and cause premature failure. Often, these failures are catastrophic.
We have performed:
When a physical system vibrates, it does so at particular natural frequencies – these frequencies and resulting mode shapes can be determined using Modal Analysis. Often, simple modal analysis can be performed, while for more complex systems, finite element analysis is performed to determine to determine the dynamic response. We perform vibration analysis on fans, shafts, pumps, medical equipment, electronic components, and structural support systems, among other components – identifying operating problems and preparing recommendations regarding operating procedure modifications. (If the deletion or addition of a support would chase a vibration problem to another location in the system, we would know it in advance of making the change).
