Specialist analysis to understand and address a customer’s transport challenge and needs.
The complexity of nuclear transports requires specialist analysis and planning. This is essential for devising the best packaging and transport solution.
When customers first come to us with a particular transport challenge, we spend time undertaking a technical needs analysis. This can often include a technical feasibility study to assess the options for packaging and transporting a particular material, safely and securely.
Whether it’s designing and delivering an entire transport operation or in part, the analysis of what is required is done rigorously. We work collaboratively with our customers and other stakeholders to ensure each transport is safe and secure from beginning to end.
Finite element analysis
As part of the assessment, if required, we will carry out a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to support the design and licensing of a package.
It’s a computer simulation technique designed to analyse a package in different ways – thermal stress, heat transfer, vibration, impact analysis and fatigue assessments are among some of the physical analyses we undertake.
This is a critical part of devising the best packaging solution for licensing and helps to avoid the costs and inefficiencies of over engineered solutions.
Finite Element Analysis – securing new package licensing
Finite Element Analysis (FEA) work was required to support a new licence to transport the 1648C package.
