Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model
1 Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

FEA is a core strength at Wood Group. We have the tools, procedures, and know-how to accurately model and analyze a wide range of systems, from the highly complex to individual machine components. Wood Group has successfully completed thousands of FEA assignments to date.

Our engineers create FE models and check results against field measurements to ensure accurate modeling. We also have over 100 ANSYS macros that increase the efficiency and accuracy of our models.

2 Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)

This is a specialized analysis of fluid flow and heat transfer applications. The technique optimizes the design and performance of critical components such as compressors, coolers, pulsation control elements and piping systems. Wood Group can provide CFD analysis for your design projects.

3 Capabilities

Wood Group's analysis includes these capabilities:

  • Modifying and fine-tuning of existing designs
  • Troubleshooting problems
  • Developing and analyzing new designs
  • Ensuring designs meet specified code requirements
  • Thermally induced stress
  • Heat transfer
  • Stress and failure analysis (static and dynamic)
  • Torsional and bending strain
  • Design validation
  • Low cycle fatigue analysis (blow cases, pressure vessels)
  • Static, thermal, and dynamic analysis
  • Forced response analysis
  • Fluid structural interaction/vibration problems due to fluid velocity through pipes, valves, and around obstructions

Wood Group has a wide range of FEA and CFD capabilities, and can manage complete design projects, from conceptual idea to design, analysis, optimization and output of a complete drawing package.

In addition to weldments and pressure vessels, Wood Group designs complex machining, castings, and forgings. We work closely with clients throughout the design process to ensure timely completion, practical results, and value-added support.

Our customers come from a number of industries including:

  • Equipment packagers
  • Machinery and equipment OEMs
  • Engineering, procurement and construction (EPC)
