STRUCTURAL ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
Large and small scale engineering projects require knowing how the forces are distributed along the whole system in order to design in a safety and profitable way. We provide this service ensuring that the analytical model represents the conditions of design and manufacture, and meeting the minimum design loads according to the most relevant international codes.
DESIGN FOR ELEMENTS SUBJECTED TO SPECIAL CONDITIONS
Depending on the location, weather, type of industry or use behind each structure, demanding forces can be applied upon the resistant system. If that is the case, we provide structural analysis to meet the client's requirements against extreme situations involving earthquakes, fire, wind, components fatigue, material embrittlement and explosions.
One of the most critical aspects in every project. Good practice designing these details is required to ensure that the overall structural behaviour is as expected. Several considerations must be taken by experienced professionals before production in order to avoid defects and life span shortening.
ASSESSMENT AND DEFECTS
The maintenance and repair of structures is a good practice to preserve assets. We are specialised in assessments to obtain the real performance in structural resistant systems and defects studies associated with weathering and failure of the materials.
ADVANCED FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS FOR SPECIAL COMPONENTS
This method allows to obtain a deep understanding of what is happening in a specific part or component within the structure, by considering different conditions like non-lineal behaviour of the materials, thermal gradients, fatigue, and local buckling effects, among others. This must be analysed just by professionals with the highest level of expertise to guarantee the correlation between model and reality.
MODELING AND ISSUANCE OF DOCUMENTATION
Interoperability and efficiency in documentation issuing are key to ensure a flow of information in the smoothest way possible between the parts involved in a new project. We are up to date with the latest trends in the industry to offer our clients a service that get the most of the new technologies.
In those cases where our services are required out of our facilities, we can help as well.
ASSISTANCE DURING THE CONCEPTUAL DESIGN
Everything begins with an initial concept where the main aspects of the project are shown, as well as the basic geometry for the correct performance. Glassfolder offers support generating preliminary structural systems to enrich design concepts, allowing more accurate budgets and anticipating manufacturing requirements and the assembly process.
