Seismic Assessment of a Structure to EC3
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.
"We at Nirvana Engineering required independent verification of an essential supplies seismic battery rack destined for an EDF nuclear site. The project required FE modelling of the proposed rack structure, supported battery system and the projected earthquake loadings. We engaged Ramsay Maunder Associates to undertake this work and found their diligence second to none. They excelled at every level throughout the project and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to any prospective client."
