Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Finite Element Analysis (FEA) provides advanced analysis on HRSG components to determine the effects of fatigue, thermal stress and other associated occurrences and prevent losses in efficiency and/or failures.

Analyzing the impact of cycling operation on HRSG components involves a crucial consideration of the influence of thermal expansion on operating stresses. Elevated cyclic stresses pose a significant risk, potentially leading to fatigue failures in HRSG components even with a limited number of starts.

In today's evolving energy market demand flexibility from combined cycle plants with HRSGs are more important than ever.

Frequent startups & shutdowns and operating at lower loads poses challenge diverging from the initial design.  Combining thermal performance simulations, FEA simulations and field inspections can help prevent losses of efficiency and/or failures.

Tetra Engineering can help plant operators through:

  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
  • Thermal performance simulations
  • Developing inspection plans to address these and other issues.

Optimized NDE

Optimized NDE

Risk-based inspection (RBI) is an approach for ranking the priority of inspection and maintenance according to an assessed risk to the component or system integrity. One key aspect of any RBI program is to carefully select the locations for non-destructive examination (NDE) that are most susceptible to damage, according to the component's design and past and project operating mode, while considering the resources and time available during an upcoming inspection. Using multi-disciplinary experience and tools (thermal simulation, life assessment, structural calculations….) Tetra will help you get the most out of your NDE campaigns, by providing pre-outage planning, on-site supervision and post-inspection review.
