Benefit from Creaform’s expertise in structural analysis for your pipeline integrity management needs.

Fea Services

Industry sectors, such as aerospace, oil and gas and power generation can benefit from structural analyses to reduce cost and ensure proper functioning of specialized equipment—when validation through physical testing is impossible or too costly to be carried out. Numerical simulations are used for Level 3 assessments to provide detailed evaluations that take into account corrosion, dents, buckles and localized surface deformations on pipes with complex geometry. Combined with 3D data acquisition, finite element analysis (FEA) or computational fluid dynamics (CFD) enable accurate and reliable estimation of the bust pressure, fatigue life and safe pipeline operation. NDT service companies and pipeline operators can count on Creaform’s expertise in non-destructive engineering to help them support maintenance decisions, understand and diagnose physical problems. Fitness for service (FFS) evaluation based on standards, such as API 579, can benefit the use of 3D data acquisition and numerical simulation to prevent pipeline failures, disruption of service or environmental contamination.

Creaform Engineering Services offer a wide range of numerical simulations. Our experienced engineers and material specialists can help you find the most efficient solution—from linear and non-linear stress analyses to fluid dynamics—using the most advanced software on the market, such as NASTRAN, NX, FEMAP, ANSYS, LS-DYNA and StarCCM+.
