Mechanical Engineering Analysis and Test

Focus on Fatigue

MoreVision has developed a number of programs to post-process finite element results, calculate fatigue damage and to plot damage directly onto the FE mesh. The assessments cover code of practices used in many countries (UK - BS7608, France -UIC 515-4 Goodman Diagram, German DIN 15 018, Swedish Volvo standards)
Experimental Methods

MoreVision strain gauge testing compliments its analysis services.
Software Success

MoreVision has sold its innovative engineering calculation software Research Engineers Inc. for worldwide distribution. The product has already earned MoreVision a DTI SMART award for innovation.
Composite Analysis

MoreVision has extensive experience in the modelling composite materials.
Dynamic Analysis
Avoid resonance by performing a dynamic analysis.
Plastic Analysis
What happens when stress rises above yield? - it may not be as severe a situation as you think.

 Railway Interiors and Refurbishment

Assessment of the interior of a railway vehicle is required to ensure the safety of passengers, particularly in a crash situation. MoreVision have extensive experience in supplying these calculations in particular for the refurbishment of London Underground's 73 tube stock (shown opposite) and the refurbishment of the Stansted Express. In addition MoreVision supports equipment suppliers in the preparation of calculations for new vehicles.
MoreVision has expertise in the analysis of composite honeycomb panel structures. These lightweight materials are commonly used for galley areas, toilet modules, doors and partitions.

 Midland Main Line Galley

The animation opposite shows the first mode of vibration of a ceiling hung steam oven unit made from honeycomb panels (shown transparently to view mounting brackets and body structure). The steam ovens were very heavy and our client was not only concerned about the strength of the honeycomb panels but also the strength of the body structure. Resilient mounting brackets were included to isolate the unit from high frequency vibrations to reduce noise levels in the galley. 

 Interior Doors, Partitions and Luggage Stacks

Partitions The picture opposite shows a finite element model of a full wall partition with a central door and two luggage stacks. It is constructed from composite honeycomb material, glass, aluminium and steel. The assembly included a number of bolted and riveted joints. The model was used for a static strength and fatigue strength check. 


Another relatively simple analysis but the strength of the table could be very important in a crash situation

 Toilet Modules

Toilet modules will contain walls, doors and various pieces of equipment that each require assessment.

Top Software Tools

MoreVision have some 20 years experience of problem solving with ANSYSŪ. They have developed a library of macros and software tools customizing ANSYS for specific problems.
Bolted Joint Analysis
MoreVision uses 'Boltcalc' software in conjunction with FEA for fast & accurate assessments.
Partnering Client Design Teams
Will it fall off? Is it strong enough? How long will it last? These are the questions on the minds of many designers. MoreVision can team up to perform simple strength assessments to allow designers to move forward with the confidence that their designs will ultimately satisfy structural criteria.
Independent Design Audits
A fresh pair of eyes can offer an new  insight into design critical problems.
Fixed Price Contracts
Whenever possible MoreVision offers fixed price contracts from the outset of a project.
Failure Investigations
Simply strengthening an area may not give you the results you want and could make the problem worse. Before a solution can even be considered it is imperative that the mechanics of the failure are completely understood.
