Finite Element Specialists and Engineering Consultants
RMA provide engineering consultancy in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to the structural/mechanical industry in the UK and further afield. Company Directors and Associates 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 Permissible 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.
As a small company, RMA has low overheads which we pass on to our clients in the form of extremely competitive fees whilst maintaining our usual approach to quality - Ramsay Maunder Associates Quality Statement.
