Engineering Design & Analysis, Ltd.

. . . .  is a specialty engineering consultancy providing analytical, project engineering, project management and heavy lift engineering services to the refining, petrochemical, oil sands, heavy oil, pipeline and power generation industries.

        Our experience and reputation is built on providing quick-turnaround & timely, cost-effective, reliable solutions and non-acadmic treatment for FFS / AIM projects directly to facility Owners, manufacturers & EPC contractors. Our analytical solutions are made to recognized and generally accepted good engineering practices.


Fitness for Service (FFS) / Asset Integrity Management (AIM)

Closed form and numerical FEA solution techniques are used to assess the structural and mechanical integrity of facility assets in a managed framework, perform fitness for service (ASME FFS - 1 / API 579) and service life assessments of deteriorated equipment; original contributions in DCU coker drum analysis & reformer fired heater component reliability have been recently made to the literature.

Design, Rerate, Alteration & Authentication

Pressure equipment and supporting design & alteration submissions entering Canada and individual provinces typically requires authentication by a licensed professional of the importing provincial / territorial jurisdiction to satisfy local regulatory authorities. This applies to various heavy industrial plant equipment such as pressure vessels, piping, exchangers & waste heat boilers, tankage, fired heaters and steam generating equipment.

Numerically Based Professional Work Products (PWP)

The proliferation of software aided engineering has progressed to where even minimally trained and inexperienced personnel may "solve" integrity & reliability problems in piping, pressure vessels, exchangers, fired & atmospheric equipment. These numerical solution techniques, designated FEA, CFD or surge analyses, require rote keystrokes to model, to calculate and to report. The interpretation of results is often defaulted to the generated calculation results. The conclusions from these "engineering reports" may be accurate, overly-conservative or severely unconservative leading to either unwarranted shut-downs or, conversely, unexpected equipment failure. For owner-engineers and in-house subject matter experts, competent 3rd party cold-eyes review & authentication is a vital step to accepting a valid PWP.

Training, Logistics & Mentoring

We provide on-and off-site training in design, materials selection, fabrication and inspection for the construction and post-construction maintenance of pressure vessel, heat exchanger, steam generation, piping and atmospheric storage tank equipment used in refineries, oilsands, petrochemical and power generation facilities. These courses are further supported with training in asset integrity techniques (fitness-for-service) and by dedicated mentoring.
