Case Studies provide a brief overview of a project and are aimed at show-casing RMA's finite element consultancy capabilities to potential clients.
This case study describes a design-analysis project in mechanical engineering undertaken by Ramsay Maunder Associates (RMA) for the pulleys of an industrial bandsaw.
This case study demonstrates Ramsay Maunder Associate's finite element consultancy capabilities for the seismic analysis and subsequent assessment of structural integrity to the Limit State Design code, EC3. The analysis was performed in ANSYS and both the Equivalent Static and Response Spectrum approaches were used and compared.
This case study demonstrates Ramsay Maunder Associate's finite element consultancy capabilities for the assessment of a pair of reinforced concrete roof slabs. The software used in this project was RMA's Equilibrium Finite Element (EFE) software tool.
This case study involved the premature failure, due to fatigue, of a component in a material processing machine. Ramsay Maunder Associates assisted the client in developing an understanding of the mechanics of the component and suggesting a design modification that would, potentially, lead to a significantly improved fatigue life
