Some of our Past Projects 

SDP Project SellafieldSilos Direct encapsulation Plant (SDP) Project: Design Stress Ltd. supported the SDP project for over 2 years. This project was aimed at reprocessing Magnox waste at the Sellafield site in Cumbria.

Design Stress Ltd. staff designed over 50 vessels, heat exchangers and tanks containing complex internal agitation / transfer systems;  and carried out detailed pipe stress analysis. The largest vessel, made from Inconel 625 alloy, weighed over 100 tonnes.

Sepam2UK Nuclear New Build Project: Our consultants supported SEPAM and the Chinese Nuclear Industry 23 (CNI23) in tendering activities for the design and manufacture of 10 nuclear storage tanks for EDF NNB at Hinkley Point C (HPC).

EDFBalance of Plant (BoP) Project: Our consultants carried out pipe stress analysis (including seismic & flange verification) on steel / composite pipework for the BoP Project in HPC to BS EN 13480 & EDF composite codes, using PipeStress (PepS) software.

CalspanCalspan (USA): We have supported international clients, like Calspan, in the design appraisal of Pressure Vessel Casings for the Aerospace Industry.

Atkins RRSubmarine Project: Our consultants reviewed existing pipe stress analyses, design assessments and crack growth data to support the plant life extension of high-integrity pipework within the primary circuit of current T-Class submarines. We successfully passed a Rolls-Royce Design Review Level 5 (DR-5) and fully delivered the work for Atkins.

AMEC1BEPPS/CIEF Project: Design Stress Ltd. staff supported the laying out of pipework, design of vessels, pumps & pipe stress analysis in two high-integrity process buildings using Finglow, CAESAR II & AutoCAD 3D softwares to ASME B31.3, PD 5500, ASME VIII and BS EN 286.

ExtrematExtreMAT Project: We supported the European integrated project ExtreMAT in 3D digitalisation, and developed a unique image-based route in generating 3D Finite Element models (using X-ray CT imaging methods & Simpleware), which captured the ‘real’ structure of materials. This has now evolved into major projects, such as, HS2.

Carrs Engineering

Box Encapsulation Plant Project: Design Stress  Ltd. supported the design of 2 in-cell nuclear pressure vessels with internal agitation and transfer systems.
