ProSIM offers expert engineering and consultancy services for structural integrity assessment of assets including energy sector (nuclear power plants, thermal power plants, oil and gas, off-shore), processing plants, and heavy equipment and machinery. Using its expertise in materials and damage modeling including fatigue, creep, creep-fatigue interaction, and crack growth; knowledge of industry specific codes such as IS, ASME B&PV, API, DNVGL, etc.,; and skills in computational techniques such as non-linear finite element analysis (FEA), computational fluid dynamics (CFD); multi-physics simulations; and using our experience, we provide services to study the structural integrity of assets, and conduct fitness for service studies (FFS); remaining life assessment/ extension (RLA/RLE services), engineering critical analysis (ECA) and provide repair, reuse, retire judgements. Our abilities to conclusively calculate the strength and stiffness of asset sections studying the effects of corrosion, erosion, pitting, conducting accurate finite element analysis calculations under different load cases s defined by the codes. We specialize in using sub-modeling approach in finite element analysis (to combine 1D pipe elements to 3D elements), for detailed study of the effects of
We assist our customers to have safe and reliable operations, mitigate risks, enhance uptime, reduce downtime, and assist them for overall productivity increase of their asset utilization.
Increasingly, we are assisting our customers in implementation of IIoT, Cloud, AI/ML based digital twin development.
