Verification and Fatigue Strength

To show that a component can withstand the given stresses and loads, verification must be provided. The maximum anticipated stresses and loads are compared with the allowable stresses and in this way a load factor or its reciprocal, a safety factor, is determined.

For existing components, we assist you with the damage analysis, including with the crack growth calculation.

Time-dependent pressure and temperature differences result in changing loads and stresses on the structure, thus verifying the fatigue strength analysis.

Verification is provided according to the following standards:

AD-2000
ASME BPVC, Sec. 3
ASME BPVC, Sec. 8
EN 13445
EN 1591
KTA
RCC-M
