Becht Engineering has substantial experience with development and review of mechanical specifications, owing to our experience with owner organizations.  We have reviewed or developed everything from corporate specifications to specific equipment specifications, and everything in between.

On behalf of our clients, we have 1) reviewed mechanical design specifications prepared by others, e.g., an EPC contractor, 2) developed generic mechanical (purchase) specifications which the client can readily adapt to cover different design conditions and locations, and 3) developed detailed specifications for a specific vessel including fabrication drawings. The specifications are in sufficient detail for an owner to solicit bids from fabricators and would cover applicable codes, materials of construction, design, fabrication, inspection, testing and shipping.  Preparation of a specification of this detail typically requires sufficient analysis, e.g., Finite Element Stress and Heat Transfer analyses to support the design.

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.
