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.

 Theme Park Engineering

Building and managing a theme park is clearly focused on visitor safety. MoreVision are often called to assess the strength, fatigue strength and safety of new attractions.

 Disneyland Hong Kong Rail Vehicle

The Disneyland railroad vehicle required extensive analysis to satisfy the local regulatory bodies. The train comprises a loco, tender vehicle and coaches. Each vehicle has its own bogie and wheelsets and all items of equipment required assessment. Analysis covered many combinations of vertical loads (tare to crush), longitudinal loads (braking, vehicle recovery) and transverse loads (curving, wind and slope). MoreVision worked closely with the vehicle manufacturers transferring data via the internet. MoreVision further supported the client through a design scrutiny process.

 Disney Vintage Vehicles

Static strength and fatigue strength analysis was required for the Main Street Vintage Vehicles in Disneyland's new Hong Kong Resort. These included a paddy wagon and a double deck omnibus vehicle.

 Mirabilandia's Monorail System

MoreVision have done a great deal of railway bodyshell analysis but analysis for the Theme Park industry is actually more like crane design than railway design. MoreVision prepared calculations for TUV approval using German DIN standards. MoreVision were also required to take the calculations through the client scrutiny process.

 Disneyland's Catastrophe Canyon

The picture opposite shows Disneyland's 'Catastrophe Canyon' ride. A burning petroleum tanker about to falls onto a crowd of onlookers... a job for Superman? No MoreVision!. MoreVision undertook a loading analysis and a stress and fatigue assessment of the wagon kingpin joint to ensure spectator safety.

 Disneyland's Indiana Jones

Remember when Indiana Jones escaped a band of marauding natives by swimming to his bi-plane floating of a river.  Disney wanted to recreate the feel of the film and bought a identical plane for use in their  'Indiana Jones and the Eye of the Temple' attraction. These planes have a take off speed of 30 miles per hour so the problem given to MoreVision was to stop the plane from taking off in strong winds. We undertook some aerodynamics calculations and designed an anchorage system for the plane.

 Cart for Disneyland's Stunt Show

A market stall cart conceals a giant airbag to break the fall of a stunt man. It was particularly difficult to design a light weight but rigid frame.

 Bogie Assessment

Strength and fatigue assessment of bogie for a leisure transport train.

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. 
Can we live with cracks?
Let MoreVision help you decide using their custom PD6493 software.
Too Hot to Handle?
MoreVision helps clients solve temperature problems.
Stress Overload?
Use MoreVision to offload work when you're too busy to cope.
