Engineering Analysis Projects


  • Aiken was contracted to determine the cause of fatigue cracks in a 29,000-ton press used to manufacture critical components for jet engines and predict the residual functionality of the damaged components. More

  • Aiken has developed software applications for specific project needs, including applications to address daily, repetitive engineering calculations. Examples include:

    Thermal analysis of clamp connectors

    ASME Section VIII Division 2 calculation procedures for piping connectors

    Projectile velocity and safety barrier calculations for high pressure tests

    — Initial sizing of drilling riser flanges used to minimize FEA iterations

    — Structural design calculations for floating roofs on large API storage tanks

    — Mechanical design calculations for wenches and shafts for offshore anchor handlers

Engineering Analysis
Our expertise is called upon when clients need engineering analysis for projects involving

  • Unique Equipment
  • Critical Components
  • High Stress
  • High Pressure
  • High Cycles
  • High to Low Temperatures
  • Large Forces and Moments
  • Dynamic Loads

We apply our broad knowledge of fundamental engineering principles using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) with classical engineering mechanics to develop specialized software to provide sound technical recommendations for our clients.


We develop design features for products or equipment, identify why equipment may fail, and advise how to avoid similar problems in the future.


  • Aiken designs and evaluates specialized equipment and components for critical service applications.
