Thanks for printing!  Don't forget to come back to ENERCON for new articles and information.

ENERCON has extensive experience in finite element analysis methods and applications for solving structural dynamics, seismic, hydrodynamic, HELB, natural hazards (wind, ice snow, floods, etc.), and nonlinear and impact design problems.  ENERCON’s staff has significant analytical experience utilizing common nuclear industry programs such as ANSYS, GTSTRUDL, STAAD, INVENTOR, ME101, PIPESTRESS2000, PIPSYS, ADLPIPE and AUTOPIPE. 

ENERCON has used these programs to evaluate and solve a wide range of structural problems related to steel and reinforced concrete, mechanical ASME and electrical IE components and piping systems and supports. Our personnel stay up-to-date with and work regulatory within and to industry codes & standards as well as prevailing industry issues and proposed resolutions.
