Becht Engineering has substantial experience and expertise in elevated temperature design. Dr Becht is a member and the former Chairman of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code Subgroup on Elevated Temperature Design and has developed elevated temperature design methods that have been incorporated into codes and corporate standards. Included in his work are ASME funded R&D projects to develop new elevated temperature design rules for Section VIII, Divisions 1 and 2.

Becht Engineering has performed many design, analysis and troubleshooting projects for elevated temperature equipment, that is, equipment operating in the creep range for the material of construction. This includes design of equipment at such high temperatures and conditions that the design criteria needed to be developed, as was done for the Marble Hill Nuclear Reactor Annealing project involving 1000°C (1800°F) ducting that was only required to operate for a relatively short duration. These criteria were accepted by authorities such as DOE, NRC and National Labs without comment.

Our expert knowledge has enabled us to develop practical solutions to many elevated temperature problems.

Finite Element Analysis

Becht Engineering has developed a reputation as one of the premier providers of Design-By-Analysis services.  We have a deep reservoir of staff that perfrom finite element analysis using commercial programs such as ABAQUS, ANSYS, SolidWorks and products of Paulin Research Group.  Types of analysis include linear and nonlinear analysis, stress, heat transfer and dynamics including seismic.

Given the many analytical tools available, we are able to choose the most efficient and cost-effective tool for the task at hand; for example, we frequently use non-linear analysis to develop more efficient equipment designs and/or to demonstrate that existing equipment is fit for service. Our extensive code expertise enables us to provide authoritative interpretations of the analysis results. Our experts include such frequently published engineers as Greg Hollinger, Trevor Seipp, and Dr. Charles Becht.
