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.
