Bolted flange joints can be extremely complicated parts of pressure equipment.  Leaking flanges can have personnel health and safety, environmental, fire, and loss of production implications.  We have extensive experience and expertise in solving leaking flange problems.  One of our experts, Clyde Neely, is the founding chair of ASME PCC-1: Guidelines for Pressure Boundary Bolted Flange Joint Assembly.  Often, leaking flanges can be solved by applying well-tested techniques from our wealth of experience.  Other times, analysis (including finite element analysis) is needed to both pinpoint the cause of the leakage and simulate the proposed solution.  Our track record of solving leaking flanges is the envy of the industry.

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.
