Stress & Thermal Analysis

The most current technology, including finite element and boundary element methods, is applied to the stress analysis of gas turbine components at Southwest Research Institute (SwRI). SwRI is a pioneer in probabilistic structural mechanics, which integrates computational mechanics and probabilistic methods to manage distribution of material properties, dimensions, and loads. Computational facilities include a central VAX computer, distributed workstations, and access to CRAY supercomputers. Available numerical codes include ABAQUS, ANSYS, and NASTRAN.

SwRI can offer you a full range of capabilities and experience in gas turbine technology including becoming an extension of your engineering department.
