Finite Element Analysis
U.S. Bellows is highly experienced in various design and analysis techniques for piping systems. Given the parameters of your application, U.S. Bellows can use finite element analysis and conventional pipe stress analysis to provide you with an in-depth analysis portfolio that is presentable to your management and your client.
See the photographs below is an example of a gimbal pipe expansion joint fabricated by U.S. Bellows. FEA was used to design the gimbal assembly.
The final product is shown after fabrication completion and then during installation in the plant.
