At BMT WBM, analysis is a key element in the overall approach to solving and preventing machinery problems. It is an integral part of the design, troubleshooting, failure analysis, performance enhancement and life extension services which we provide.
BMT WBM specialises in mathematical modelling and simulation of all types of engineering problems. It uses leading edge software and computing hardware to provide rapid answers to complex problems involving stress analysis, fluid flows, heat transfer, structural and drive dynamics and control systems.
In addition, the company has always maintained a large group of highly qualified, very experienced analysts, with a practical, customer problem focus. BMT WBM has special expertise and experience in a number of key areas including:
Stress Analysis and Finite Element Modelling
BMT WBM uses a range of FEA software packages to analyse complex machine structures and components for stress, deflection, buckling, fatigue and related assessments.
Vibration problems involving large machine structures are routinely addressed using FEA software.
Heat Transfer, Temperature
BMT WBM specialises in analysing complex thermal problems involving conduction, free and forced convection, using FEA or CFD.
We use powerful CFD software to assess fluid flow problems as an aid to calculating flow rates, pressure drops and drag coefficients.
Drive Train Dynamics
BMT WBM uses a range of proprietary and in-house software to analyse torsional and associated dynamics of machine drive trains, including prime movers and multi-branched geared systems.
