Ramsay Maunder Associates (RMA) Limited provide engineering consultancy services to industry. Company Directors and Associates are specialists in Finite Element (FE) analysis and have considerable longstanding and recognised expertise in the understanding and modelling of structures and mechanical components. The company adopts best practices of simulation governance (Verification & Validation) as laid down by NAFEMS in all our work.
RMA has significant recent experience in projects where mechanical components have failed prematurely and satisfactory remedial design changes are required immediately if not sooner! Such projects often require rapid assimilation of the situation and a distillation of the problem into a simple model that can be used to understand and then rectify the problem. Other projects, particularly in highly regulated industries, require designs to fulfill codified structural integrity practices, whether Allowable Stress Design or the more modern Limit State Design approaches. RMA has experience in structural integrity assessment to a range of such codes of practice.
