ProSIM is a preferred engineering design services and engineering outsourcing company that provides piping engineering services. ProSIM works as a piping engineering consultant in Bangalore. ProSIM provides piping related engineering services to host of industries including nuclear, oil and gas, off-shore, thermal power, bioenergy, and processing plants. ProSIM provides comprehensive engineering consultancy services during design stage with expertise in design, code check and qualification, analysis, and optimization and design documentation. During maintenance stage, ProSIM provides asset structural integrity assessment services, in-service inspection (ISI) services, remaining life assessment service&fitness for service (FFS), engineering critical analysis (ECA) services, and repair, reuse, retire judgement.
In piping engineering we have worked as preferred piping engineering consultants / piping design consultants/ pipe stress analysis consultants to do outsourced / offshored engineering work for operators, EPC contractors, system integrators, technology providers, and equipment suppliers and also as owners’ engineering consultants, and third-party reviewers. We have often been drafted as engineering experts in legal arbitrations.
In pipeline engineering services, ProSIM has worked on both onshore (above ground/ surface pipeline and buried pipelines) and offshore pipelines, submerged pipelines, carrying crude or natural gas or processed crude products. We have developed design basis reports (DBR), reviewed DBRs, carried code check as per DNVGL codes, performed engineering critical analysis (ECA) of pipelines.
ProSIM team has skills and expertise in using software such as CAESAR-II, PEPS- (PIPESTRESS), CAEPIPE, etc. As per customer request, we have also used pipe elements in software such as ANSYS and ABAQUS to solve some unique problems. Our team has good background of 1D element topology of finite element analysis (FEA), used in pipe stress analysis. Our using our knowledge as needed we can create 3D FEA models of sections of piping and pipelines. We often use sub-modeling approach to combine 1D pipe FEA and 3D FEA models. We have developed necessary procedures for such complex exercise. ProSIM team is fully conversant with relevant international codes such as IS, ASME B&PV, (including ASME B31.1 -power piping, ASME B31.2-Fuel gas piping, ASME B31.3 -process piping), RCC, API, EN, ISO, DNVGL, etc., to carry out the design, analysis, and code check and qualification.
ProSIM has expertise to carry out pipe stress analysis of intricate pipelines used in energy utilities and processing industries. Various loadings such as dead weight, thermal and pressure loads; occasional loads such as wind, ice/snow, seismic, water hammer, steam hammer, ocean current loads are considered during analysis. Benefits of pipe stress analysis service from ProSIM are:
