Life Assessment

Life cycle management strategies are designed on the basis of proven analytical techniques, our knowledge of the material systems involved and our experience with the state-of-the-art inspection techniques used for depot level inspection. Our expertise in evaluating the viability of using commercially available life extension technologies for different applications has proven to benefit our customers by :

Optimizing the usage of costly components for specific applications, like scenario analysis where the effects of varying key parameters such as duty cycle or material characteristics are analyzed to determine the change in component life, and implementation of probabilistic techniques that better simulate real life failure scenarios rather than the typical deterministic ‘worst case scenario’ methods. This permits the risk of failure to be quantified
