Becht Engineering is expert in the design and analysis of high pressure equipment.  Our staff includes the former Chair of the high pressure subgroup of ASME B31.3 responsible for Chapter IX rules and the former long time Chair of the Subgroup on High Pressure Vessels, which is responsible for the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code, Section VIII, Division 3.  We have designed piping and pressure vessels for pressures in excess  of 3,500 bar, such as for the manufacture of low density polyethylene (LDPE).  We have reviewed and commented on the design of  pressure vessels for pressures up to 6,000 bar.  Our designs have included high pressure composite vessels for natural gas transport (glass fiber) and hydrogen fuel tanks (carbon fiber). We use our in-house fracture mechanics software for the design of such equipment for cyclic loading.

Finite Element Analysis

Becht Finite Element Analysis
lick Valve for More Info

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.
