Fixture engenieering

Verification according to DIN EN 1993, DIN EN 13001, DIN EN 13155 and KTA

Fixture engenieering is used to erect, position, guide or support the machine or machine parts during their assembly, disassembly and operation. Customized solutions ranging from simple designs to very complex contructions are usually developed based on the application, especially in Powerplant contruction. With the help of FEM simulation, we provide verifications of fixture engenieering for our customers. We offer you extensive experience from more than 275 man-years of project processing

Usually, the Fixture engenieering is subjected to static loads. However based on the application, if necessary, external loads such as wind and earthquakes must also be taken into account.

The evaluation of the design is carried out according to the relevant standards, including DIN EN 1993, DIN EN13001, DIN EN 13155. In the field of Nuclear Technology, the evaluation is carried out according to the KTA rules.


Your advantage through simulation

With the help of FEM simulation, the deformation and the stress in the Fixture engenieering designs can be very efficiently evaluated. In this way, critical areas can be localized and the development costs of complex designs can be reduced. With the help of FEM simulation, the constructions can be optimized in terms of their costs and function. Existing components can be reassessed and upgraded with regard to a changed load.


Documentation of the simulation results

Depending on the customer’s requirements, documentation of the calculation results is provided in the form of a verificable calculation report in German and English or in the form of a short documentation. In discussion with you, we present the results that are important to you clear and understandable.
