EWI’s Structural Integrity Team provides services to demonstrate that a structure with joints has enough strength to meet all the demands placed on it and can resist cracks growing to failure. These enable us to determine what cracks can be tolerated, if a structure will pass qualification tests, and if the desired lifetime can be achieved.

Our structural integrity services can be tailored to involve components of material testing, structure testing, structural analysis, assessment of the material for how easy it is to join, and prediction of the lifetime in service. This can be as specific as failure analysis of an individual part or as general as the creation of design standards for an entire class of structures.

We can adapt any of the following to meet your specific needs:

  • Strength Demonstration
  • Fatigue Resistance Demonstration
  • Fracture Resistance Demonstration
  • Design Specification Creation
  • Failure Analysis
  • Fitness for Service
  • Strain-based Design
